Internationale Motivgruppen Olympiaden und Sport (IMOS)


IMOS is composed of collectors of philately, numismatics and memorabilia related to the Olympic Movement as well as individual sports. We welcome both advanced and newer collectors still searching for their field of specialization or deeper research. Our publications are directed, in the first instance, to German collectors, but since our establishment in 1966 which united three longtime Olympic and sports collector groups, we also traditionally cater to our many collector friends worldwide.
