|To symbolize the link between the ancient and modern Olympic Games, each Olympic year officials rekindle the flame from the rays of the sun in Olympia, Greece, the site of the original Olympic Games. A relay of runners then carries the flame to the site of the new games; the lighting of the Olympic cauldron has become the most hallowed moment of the Olympics.
The coin proptrays a scene of the Olympic Flame lighting ceremony, held on the site of Ancient Olympia, with the high priestess handing the Olympic Torch to the first runner of the torch relay and the words "Olympic Flame Lighting"
