- I would add a few things concerning this.First of all , I find this Fisherman 'fishy',so to speak...in several regards,a)Denomination- at the same time,coins have been struck for Vietnam at the Singapore mint,denom.10000Dong,it seems to me these are even lighter than 100 Dong 2004,even if those are coloured,this difference makes little sense...b)Subject-Fishing is not an Olympic sport,why put it on a Olympic commemorative coin? C)Rarity,it seems to me there is only one other coin,rarer than this one,companion to Km 77 Horse rider..This companion coin. Could be a pattern also. I have seen this Rider only once in twelve years,Fisherman appeared only 3 times since 2004 on E bay,twice for a fixed price..once sold from Germany,the other sold by a Chinese dealer....It could be just a pattern from Finland mint,they could have taken an obverse die from 2000Olymp.coins,made some coins with it- and new design...it would explain the strangely low denomination. Even the companion to this 2004 coin does not appear much more often ( I have seen fewer than 20 sold)...I would say it appears even less than Km 77 Horse rider...
