The 1984 Olympics Commemorative Silver Dollar was the second coin issued to mark the XXIII Olympiad held in Los Angeles, California. In the prior year, a separate commemorative silver dollar had been issued featuring a discus thrower.
The 1984 coin’s obverse depicts the Olympic Gateway, which was the entrance of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Two headless sculptures appear to either side of an Olympic flame on a lintel.
The obverse inscriptions include “Liberty”, “In God We Trust”, “Los Angeles”, “XXIII Olympiad”, and the date “1984″ with the “P” mintmark for Philadelphia.
The reverse of the coin depicts a perched bald eagle with an olive branch. The coin was designed by Robert Graham, who had created Olympic Gateway.
The reverse inscriptions include “United Sates of America”, the denomination “One Dollar”, and at the base of the eagles perch “E Pluribus Unum”.
