Description

Australia’s finest athletes and para-athletes will be proudly competing in the Commonwealth Games, to be staged in Birmingham, England, from 28 July to 8 August 2022. To mark the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and to support Australia’s athletes, the Royal Australian Mint is releasing a commemorative 2022 50cGold-Plated Uncirculated Coin.

Every four years, some of the world’s finest athletes compete in the Commonwealth Games, created in 1930 to promote sporting competition among British Empire nations. The inaugural games were staged in Canada and only twice have the games not been held, during and immediately after World War 2..
Seventy-two teams compete, representing 54 Commonwealth nations and their territories.
Australia is just one of six nations to have competed in every Commonwealth Games. Australian athletes have always performed well, topping the medal tally at 13 of the 21 games.
Nine nations have hosted Commonwealth Games. Australia has hosted the most – in Sydney (1938), Perth (1962), Brisbane (1982), Melbourne (2006) and Gold Coast (2018).
Where once para-athletes competed in separate games, they are now fully integrated into the Commonwealth Games, with their events staged as part of the program and medals counting towards a nation’s medal tally.
