Pins Corner:

Pins are one of the most popular collectors’ products of the Special Olympics Games. The Games of recent years proved that pins are not just a commemorative product; they are also a pleasant hobby. Besides, it is not accidental that pins are called “Spectators’ Sport”.

The pins are designed and distributed by the official ATHENS 2011 licensee, Creative Concept Hellas.

Pins draw their subjects from a variety of design themes such as emblems, mascots, games values, sports, and a wide range of other design themes. Each pin has a unique code written on the back, as well as a number that indicates the total pins produced in that particular design. If it is issued in less than 35,000 copies, it is particularly valuable as a collector’s item, while those having the highest value are designs issued in quantities of less than 7,000, 4,000, or 1,000.

Pin Trading Events:

Pre & Games time with the co-operation of the official Licensee, at Olympic Sports Complex, pin-trading events will be planed, where collectors from all over the world will participate. More information will be available soon.

Product Protection:

The Athens 2011 Special Olympics Games are a matter of national effort, and it is important that each part of this effort, whether large or small, be protected. All official ATHENS 2011 products will bear state-of-the-art systems (holograms) for checking authenticity.
