The 2024 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad, and commonly known as Paris 2024, is an international multi-sport event that is scheduled to take place from 26 July to 11 August 2024 in Paris, France. Having previously played host in 1900 and 1924, Paris will become the second city to host the Olympics three times, after London (1908, 1948 and 2012). 2024 will mark the centenary of the Paris Games of 1924 and the sixth Olympic Games hosted by France (three in summer and three in winter).
Following the postponement of the Tokyo Olympic Games, the year 2021 officially marks the beginning of the countdown to the Paris Games. It is the handing over of the Olympic flag during the closing ceremony of the previous Games that marks the starting point of a new era of Games in France. 2021 was also the first year of a quadrilogy in which sport and its values will be honored through the Monnaie de Paris' coin and medallions collections. To mark the countdown to the launch of the Games, Monnaie de Paris issued a €2 commemorative coin for four years from 2021. These coins highlighted the Olympic Games through famous French numismatic figures.
