The 1984 Olympics Commemorative Silver Proof Dollar was the second coin issued to mark the XXIII Olympiad held in Los Angeles, California.
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″.
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”.
The 1983 Olympic Silver Proof Dollar was struck at the San Francisco Mint.
The coin is housed in a plastic capsule. This coin is proof quality, which means it meets the finest standards in the industry for both beauty and craftsmanship, carefully designed to represent the best possible versions of the original model.
