Get ready for another collecting sensation!
Excitement is building across the globe for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
But as you might expect, we’re most excited about Brazil’s new Olympic coins…
In the UK, the Olympic 50p series was a revolution in coin collecting – for many it represents the start of their interest in coins and millions rose to the challenge of collecting all 29. There were 29 million Olympic 50p coins that originally entered circulation. Of those, the Royal Mint estimates that 75% have been removed from circulation by collectors!
The same collecting revolution is now taking place in Brazil…
For the first time ever, the Summer Olympic Games will be held in South America. And to celebrate this historic occasion, Brazil have launched a series of commemorative coins.
The Casa da Moeda do Brazil (The Brazilian Mint) have issued 16 commemorative Real coins featuring a different Olympic sport on each.
This is big news… Brazil has previously only ever minted coins on extremely rare occasions.
These official Brazilian Commemorative coins for Rio 2016 are crafted collector pieces and are sure to become a collecting sensation. These coins will most definitely be snapped up quickly among residents of Brazil.
But don’t worry, you won’t have to travel over 5000 miles to get your hands on them, we’ve managed to source all 16 ‘Real’ coins from Brazil…
