On the occasion of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to this renowned international competition through a collection honoring sport, its value, the athletes but also the host country's heritage. The Olympic and Paralympic Games are celebrated.
A rich collection that begins with the handover of the flag between Tokyo and Paris to mark the countdown to 2024.
This collector coin symbolises the handover of the relay between Japan and France, two hosts nations of the Olympic games. On the obverse, the relay indicator is passed between a Japanese sportsman and a French sportswoman (who can be identified by ther nail art). In the background, the Tokyo Tower seems to be answering to its Parisian peer, the Eiffel Tower.
On the reverse, the Japanese and French flags are side by side and the central circle of the Japanese flag moves to the right to become rings, a reference to the Olympic rings. The emblem of PARIS2024 completes this composition.
