The issue of the collector coin for the Tokyo Olympic Games is being postponed
Following the postponement of the summer Olympics in Tokyo, the Eesti Pank programme of issuing collector and commemorative coins has been amended. The collector coin dedicated to the Estonian athletes at the summer Olympic Games in Tokyo that was planned for issue in 2020 will be issued in summer 2021.
The International Olympic Committee and the organising committee for the Tokyo Olympic Games confirmed in March this year that the Summer Olympics that were planned to start in July 2020 will be postponed because of the spread of the COVID19 virus. The games will be held from 23 July to 8 August 2021.
Eesti Pank is happy to receive suggestion for commemorative and collector coins by post or email or through its website. The bank passes all the suggestions it receives to the advisory committee for analysis and expert opinion. The proposals of the advisory committee are used by the management of Eesti Pank when they decide on which commemorative and collector coins to issue.
