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 has issued this commemorative 2022 50cGold-Plated Uncirculated Coin.
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.
