Monnaie de Paris is issuing silver and gold coins for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games as part of its Heritage collection running from 2021 to 2024.
This is the French capital’s third time hosting the Olympics, after 1900 and 1924. To mark the 2024 games, Monnaie de Paris is celebrating this prestigious international competition with its Heritage collection focusing on sport, sporting values, the athletes as well as the cultural heritage of the host country.
Three sports were honoured in 2021, with four more to follow in each of the subsequent years up to 2024. The obverse depicts the respective sport, while the reverse – identical for all the coins in the series – features a view of Paris with the River Seine resembling an athletics track. The Eiffel Tower dominates the city and illuminates the competitions.
