In ancient Greece, a ‘sacred truce’ suspended all hostilities so warriors could showcase their athletic abilities in Olympia.
Today, the Olympic Games are much bigger. The athletes more diverse, travelling from around the globe to compete in a spirit of peace, equality and fair play. Through sport, they display the very best of humanity—tolerance, respect and friendship—ideals to inspire and unite the world.
Each coin arrives in a black display case with an insert, which houses the encapsulated coin, and is accompanied by a serialized certificate. Protected by a special Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games theme Sleeve.

Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger)
These three words, comprising the motto of the Olympic movement, encourage the athlete in all of us to give our best during competition, and to view this effort as its own victory.
The only Olympic Winter Games held in Canada was in 1988, in the city of Calgary, Alberta. In 2010, Canada will proudly host the XXI Olympic Winter Games, this time in Vancouver, British Columbia. Let the Games begin!
