SYDNEY TO ATHENS
This NCLT Fine Silver (.999) $5 was minted by the RAM and issued in a plush case.
The design considers the 2700 year history of the Olympic Games as well as uniting the Australian and Greek cultures through architecture. The depiction of the ancient Greek Parthenon and The Sydney Opera House emphasises and highlights the ancient cultures of Greece and the newer modern culture of Australia.
The first Modern Olympic games were held in Athens, Greece in 1896 and return again in 2004. Sydney to Athens is a pertinent reminder of the continuing journey undertaken by the Australian Olympic team. Australia is one of only two nations, Greece being the other, to have competed at every one of the Modern Summer Olympic games and has been fortunate to have hosted the event twice: Melbourne in 1956 and Sydney in 2000.
