Every four years the best athletes from around the world come together for almost three weeks to test their skills and to compete for medals to bring home to their own countries. What a wonderful chance to watch these amazing men and women demonstrate the great courage and strength that it takes to be a professional athlete!
The 2002 Winter Olympics was held in Salt Lake City, Utah. Because this is such an exciting event for our country, the United States Mint issued two commemorative coins in support of these special games. These beautiful gold and silver coins include symbols related to the Winter Olympic Games, such as the snowflake “Crystal Emblem,” the Olympic flame, and the Olympic rings.
