2000 OLYMPHILEX DOLLAR UNC PAIR OF MINTMARKS C AND S


Both types of $1 issued for the Olymphilex exhibition during the Sydney Olympics.

The mintmark one dollar series is hugely popular right around the country - these coins are affordable, scarce and really well presented, which is why they're put away by parents, grandparents and keen collectors as soon as they're released.

There are always new collectors coming into the market each year, when many of them decide to get the back issues, it means there's plenty of healthy competition for the few that come onto the market! Not only do most collectors want one of each design, they want one of each mintmark that was used.

The Royal Australian Mint attended the Olymphilex exhibition in Sydney during the 2000 Olympic Games, a special commemorative coin was produced for the event. In addition to its unique design, the coin was edge-lettered with the word ‘Sydney’. The edge-lettering machine was specially transported to the exhibition for the event.

The coin was designed by Wojciech Pietranik, who was also the designer of the Sydney Olympic Victory Medals and the Paralympic gold, silver and bronze coins. The RAM in Canberra also hosted a section of the Olymphilex exhibition in a new gallery area prepared for the event, and issued a coin edge-lettered with the word ‘Canberra’.

These coins remains in as-issued condition, and come with the original wallets they were issued in by the RAM.
