Design details:

The forth lowest minted Olympic coin again makes this sell for a premium on auction sites.

The Olympic Triathlon consists of 1.5km swimming, 40km cycling and 10km running all completed consecutively. The sport made its debut at the Sydney Games in 2000, and Alistair Brownlee won Britain's first ever gold in the event at the 2012 games.
