  • Olympic Philately, Numismatic and Memorabilia Commission (OPNMC)
    The Commission "is responsible for advising the IOC on the dissemination of the Olympic ideal through the worldwide promotion of stamps, coins and items commemorating the Olympic Games."
    And under the heading: "Stamps at the origin"
    "Collecting items commemorating the Olympic Games started with the first Games of the modern era in 1896.
    Olympic stamps, issued to balance the budget of the Organising Committee, were the first objects of Olympic collecting, and have been the passion of several generations of philatelists. Collectors of Olympic memorabilia soon joined stamp collectors and, in 1951, when Olympic coins were struck for the first time, coin enthusiasts also entered the world of Olympic collectors."
