The Sydney 2000 Olympic Coin Program is a joint venture between the Royal Australian Mint and the Perth Mint to commemorate the Olympic Games in Sydney in the Year 2000.  The sixteen coins in the Silver Coin Series feature two distinct themes: Australia’s cultural diversity and the environmental richness of the Australian Continent.

Each Silver coin carries the Sydney 2000 signature with rings in colour and is edge-lettered with the words ‘Games of XXVII Olympiad’.

Two of Australia’s best-known symbols, the emu and the golden wattle feature on the reverse design by Stuart Devlin.  The emu features on the Australian Coat of Arms and is the second tallest of the world’s flightless birds, behind the ostrich, reaching a towering two metres in height.  The procreation and life cycle of the emu are unique.  The female lays the eggs and the male incubates them and tends to the hatchlings for up to 18 months.  The wattle is the floral emblem of the Commonwealth of Australia.

The coin is encapsulated and a rich green colour has been chosen for the interior and the exterior of the presentation case.  The coin is accompanied by a descriptive booklet that includes a Certificate of Authenticity and is protected by a beauty box.
