So, what exactly is Olympic collecting all about?

Good question! While Olympic collectibles – primarily coins – date back to the time of the Ancient Olympic Games, most present-day collectors concentrate on preserving the heritage of the Modern Olympic Games.

To learn more about Olympic collection, stop by the expo’s Olympic Pavilion, and secondly, don’t forget to check out the website of the International Association of Olympic Collectors, where you can find out how to join an Olympic collecting group in the United States or other countries.
