Coca-Cola Celebrates the 1998 Winter Olympic Games
with an Event at World of Coca-Cola Atlanta

The Coca-Cola "Pin-of-the-Day" will be released for sale to the public at the
Everything Coca-Cola store at World of Coca-Cola Atlanta to coincide with each
day of the 1998 Winter Olympic Games in Nagano (February 7-22).  The
"Pin-of-the-Day" was first created by The Coca-Cola Company during the 1994
Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer and continued to be one of the most
popular Olympic pin designs during the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta.
The Coca-Cola "Pin-of-the-Day" series offers a different highly collectible,
limited-edition pin (1,998 worldwide) for each day of the Games.  The entire
series of 16 pins forms the unique Coca-Cola contour bottle, the world's most
recognized trademark.  In addition, a 17th pin known as the "Commemorative
Crown" will also be available for sale on February 22nd to complete the set.

Only 398 Coca-Cola "Pin-of-the-Day" pins will be released for sale at 6PM on
each weekday and at 2PM on each weekend date during the 1998 Winter Olympic
Games at World of Coca-Cola Atlanta.  Other limited edition pins, including
the Coca-Cola "Pin-of-the-Night," will be available for sale.  The Coca-Cola
"Pin-of-the-Day" and "Pin-of-the-Night" series will be limited to one pin
purchase per collector on each release date.  

On Sunday, February 22nd, fans will also have the opportunity to once again
view and trade Olympic pins from past, present and future Olympic Games at
World of Coca-Cola Atlanta.  An Olympic Pin Trading Show is scheduled to
coincide with the date of the Closing Ceremony in Nagano.  This "Pin Trading
Only" show will occur outside and adjacent to World of Coca-Cola Atlanta from
1pm to 4pm.  COCA-COLA WILL PROVIDE A HEATED TENT WITH INDOOR LIGHTING FOR PIN
TRADING USE DURING THE SHOW.  TWELVE "BOTTLE-CAP" TABLES FROM THE COCA-COLA
OLYMPIC PIN TRADING CENTER IN ATLANTA WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE INSIDE THE TENT.
