"By the time they lit that enormous ‘River of Fire’ trail of fireworks from Stadium Australia to Sydney Harbour on Sunday, we all knew that these Millennium Olympic Games had been something special. Now and then this aching planet does come together, in ways that can move and surprise you."

It's hardly surprising then that collectibles of the Sydney 2000 games were in extremely strong demand, many discerning collectors wanted an heirloom that was solid and officially-produced to pass onto future generations.

The Sydney 2000 Olympic coins have been the most enduring collectibles of the entire games, for these four reasons:

  1. Produced by the Australian government;

  1. Limited edition;

  1. Superb quality & presentation;

  1. Made from solid, pure Australian gold and silver.

Although 30,000 gold and 100,000 silver coins were struck, just 10,000 of each type were reserved for special release in the three coin precious metal sets.

Each of these sets contains one gold coin, and two silver coins.

The design themes on the coins in this set are:

Gold: The Journey Begins

Silver (Flora & Fauna): Kangaroo & Grasstrees

Silver (Culture): Festival of the Dreaming

Comes in the original case and with its certificate of authenticity.
