Couldn't find any online references for this item. The coin imaging identification
app doesn't seem to work as well. Appreciate your help!

Please post weight and diameter. Also, how did you acquire it, from where etc. Any inscription on the edge? These details may help identification. Is it magnetic?

As suggested, weight, metal content, etc would help. I'd guess if it came in that display case, it's not a coin but something round and shiny a coin company had privately struck and sold it as a commemorative medallion (can't call it a coin if it's not legal tender in a sovereign country) along with a display case, certificate of authenticity and story card for 5-10 times the spot price.
Isn't there any info on the paperwork? The U.S Mint didn't issue anything like that for the Atlanta Olympics.

Hmm, this was a tough one to find anything on. The best I can do is that there is another copy of this medal for sale on the yahoo taiwan auction site tw.bid.yahoo. While I don't have access to this website, you should be able to get there using the keywords "citius altius fortius" AND "hold the moment".

I agree with @soac that it came from a private issuer.

Thanks everyone here for the helpful pointers.
Diameter of the coin ia 37mm, thickness 3mm.
Milled edges with no inscriptions.

My weighing scale broke down, but just by holding it, it doesn't have the weight of a gold piece, probably at best plated.

Thanks for all the pointers.

Finally had my weighing scale set up.

Coin specifics
Diameter: 37mm
Thickness: 3mm
Weight: 35.85g

Edges are milled, no inscriptions.

From the weight and dimensions, it could be silver, and possibly plated or clad with gold, i.e. similar to an Olympic Gold medal. Unfortunately I have no way of verifying.
