1976 Montreal and Kingston Olympic Games Commemorative Coins. Twenty (20) Encapsulated Silver Proof Five and Ten Dollar Coins. Five 4-Coin Series Included Here. Original Box, Receipts, Info Cards. 1976 Montreal Summer Games. Most numismatists agree that the first true numismatic collection was the Olympic Five and Ten Dollar coins for the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Starting in February 1973, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) engaged in a very ambitious program. At the behest of the federal government, led by then-Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, it was agreed that these coins would help finance and commemorate the 1976 Summer Olympics. These coins would be categorized into seven series with each series configured into four coin sets (two five dollar coins and two ten dollar coins). Olympic Track and Field Sports. Olympic Water Sports (NOT INCLUDED IN THIS OFFERING). Olympic Team and Body Contact Sports. Olympic Souvenirs (NOT INCLUDED IN THIS OFFERING). Each coin is 92.5% silver for a net silver weight of 44.955 grams (1.4453 troy ounces) and 22.478 grams (0.7227 troy ounces) of silver respectively. All housed in the original locking leatherette display case, key included. NOTE : This item is a perfect example of how deep we are going into our fifty plus year collection of rare books, coins, tribal artifacts, pop and rock art, memorabilia and collectibles. Many of these offerings are one-of-a-kind, due in large part, to my involvement in professional sports, publishing, business and science. Examples include the racquet that Serena Williams won her first Grand Slam title with, rare books signed by usually reticent authors, and so very much more.
