After being postponed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 32nd Olympiad is almost upon us. And this lustrous 2-coin set of Choice Uncirculated silver dollars commemorating the 1983 Olympics is the perfect way to celebrate!
The 1984 Summer Olympics were truly historic. The first female-exclusive events were held. New Zealand’s Neroli Fairhall became the first paraplegic athlete to take part in a medal event. Carl Lewis matched Jesse Owens’ 1936 achievement by winning 4 gold medals. And despite a boycott led by the Soviet Union, nearly 7,000 athletes – including over 1,500 women – competed from a record 140 nations.
Recall the excitement with these official 90% silver U.S. commemoratives. The 1983 silver dollar’s obverse depicts a discus thrower in action, with a close-up image of an American eagle on the reverse. Designed by Robert Graham, the 1984 coin shows his Olympic Gateway sculpture marking the entrance to the L.A. games on the obverse, while its reverse displays an American eagle with an olive branch atop a rock. The set comes in a handsome display box, and is sure to please. Order yours today!
