Numismatica Iberica gold medallion commemorating the 19th Olympic Games held in Mexico City, 1968. Comes with a protective wallet and certificate.

The 1968 Mexican Summer Olympics were heaped with controversy. Several hundred demonstrators were killed near to where the Olympics were held, by the Mexican Army and Police shortly before the games opened. American atheletes, Tommie Smith and John Carlos, made a 'Black Power' salute at the winner's podium during the US national anthem, and Czechoslovakian Gymnast Vera Cáslavská made a similar political statement during the playing of the Soviet National anthem in protest at the Soviet invasion of her country that year.

All investment products are based on the live precious metal price. Prices will be fixed once the item has been added to the basket and re calculates just before checking out. 

If your product is not a graded coin and is considered a bullion item it should be noted that these are bought and sold on low premiums over their precious metal content and not solely for aesthetic purposes, therefore some products may have edge knocks and/or marks. These edge knocks and marks do not alter the specifications of the coins.
