NGC Registry Featured Set: Winter Olympic Games

Posted on 1/11/2022

This month’s featured set belongs to collectioncoin.

As we welcome a new year, we pay tribute to the much-anticipated 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. Beginning in early February, the Olympics are a celebration of the finest athletes from all around the world. In honor of the the international magnitude of such an event, we showcase the finest international Winter Olympic Games, Host Country Proof set, by collectioncoin.

With over 400 participants in the Olympic sub-category, this theme is clearly a popular one for NGC Registry collectors. This particular set type has 21 participants, and collectioncoin currently sits in first place at 65% completion. With 140 slots to fill and a start date of 1964 for this set, 100% completion may be an Olympic event in and of itself! In light of the extensive nature of this set, our participants experience the joy of the journey with countless countries and denominations involved. This collector rises to the challenge by boasting images for all 92 of his coins, many of them NGC Top Pops. Be sure to check out his gallery for a diverse and comprehensive view of the varied numismatic gems he has on display.

Amazingly, collectioncoin began assembling this collection back in 2010 and remains committed to this theme; he has a total of eleven Olympic NGC sets! Curious about his other Olympic sets? Check them out here. Thank you, collectioncoin, for sharing your expansive collection for the enjoyment of the entire NGC collecting community. We truly appreciate it and look forward to what other interesting updates you will have for us in 2022!

Would you like your set to be featured in a future article? 100% completion in a set is not always feasible. Perhaps, we will choose someone whose set has a personal story behind it or some interesting historical facts. We are looking for those sets where someone has taken the time to make the set unique and a reflection of his/her personal collecting style. It may be your set! Stay tuned.
