The 1983 Olympics Commemorative Silver Dollar was issued to celebrate the 1984 Olympic Games held in Los Angeles, California. Notably, this coin was the first commemorative silver dollar produced since 1900. While the denomination was used on only one occasion for the early commemoratives, the silver dollar became a mainstay of modern commemoratives.
 
The obverse of the coin features a dramatic depiction of the traditional Greek discus thrower, inspired by the work of Myron. Three outlines are shown to create the impression of motion. To the right, the Olympic “star in motion” symbol appears with the Olympic rings.
 
The obverse inscriptions read “Los Angeles”, “XXIII Olympiad”, “In God We Trust”, “Liberty” and the date “1983” with the “S” mintmark for San Francisco.
 
The reverse of the coin depicts the head and upper body of a bald eagle. The design was by Elizabeth Jones, the Chief Sculptor and Engraver of the United States Mint at the time.  The reverse inscriptions include “United States of America”, “E Pluribus Unum”, and the denomination “One Dollar”.
