a collection of Apple British and Canadian Olympics lapel pins

These brand new, limited edition authentic Apple Olympic enamel pins were designed by Apple Inc. to promote the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. The pins were only available at the Vancouver Apple store and they were not available for sale anywhere. The white cardboard backed pin set includes two metal 19mm x 19mm (3/4" by 3/4") pins in original packaging: one is a Canadian maple leaf and the other is the Apple logo and both are designed as App icons. There is one single pin on an Olympic card. The pins not on white cardboard are iPod Nano style pins, also in original packaging and measure 17mm x 38mm (5/8" x 1-1/2"). The backs have ™2010 Apple, Inc. All shown have a butterfly clasp.

There are 26 unused unopened 2010 pins with a value of $25 each - total listed price  would be $650 but the quantity purchase of all the CDN pins shown would lower that to $425. All 26 are available as a set postage paid.

The bottom row on the right side shows a brand new authentic Apple iPad Olympic pin designed by Apple Inc. to promote the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games. These 3 pins were issued in the UK on 8 July, the first day of the London 2012 Olympics, and only in very limited numbers. They were hard to get then and are highly collectible now.

The design is of an iPad, with the Union Jack flag filling the entire screen. The enamel pin badge is on a presentation card in the factory sealed plastic envelope. The Apple logo and details are printed on the back of the card. It has a butterfly clasp and is new and unopened. The list price is $45.

For sale also in the UK set are two new individual pins not on cards: a black iPad and a white iPhone. They are priced at $25 each making the total listing price for the three 2012 British pins at $95 plus $5 postage or add them to the CDN set for $75.
