Woolworths releases Olympic and Paralympic coins

Woolworths and the Royal Australian Mint have released a range of limited-edition Australian Olympic and Paralympic-themed $2 coins.

From tomorrow (14 July), 12 million $2 coins will be available for customers to collect via the retailer’s supermarket registers.

Six exclusive and unique $2 coins will be available to collect, with a coin released each week. Five of the coins represent the five colours of the Olympic rings, while a green and gold $2 coin represents the Paralympic Games.

Limited-edition Olympic coins collectors’ albums will also be exclusively available in-store for $15, containing all five collectible $2 coins. A Paralympic album with the $2 collectible coin will be available for $3 from 18 August.

Woolworths Chief Marketing Officer Andrew Hicks says the retailer is proud to be a partner of the Australian Olympic and Paralympic teams.

“We have a long history of celebrating Australia’s rich sporting history with our customers, and these coins are another great way for them to show their support for our Australian Olympic and Paralympic teams as they go for gold in Tokyo,” he says.

These themed coins follow the launch of the Woolworths Aussie Heroes collectible stickers. Sixty-eight past and present Olympians and Paralympians were revealed last week as the featured athletes on these stickers, in celebration of this year’s Australian team as they make their way to the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics.
