The 1994 World Cup Silver Proof Dollar was issued as part of a three coin program to celebrate the XV FIFA World Cup playoff. The final game was held in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
The obverse of the coin features two soccer players running towards a soccer ball in play. This was designed by Dean McMullen and modelled by US Mint engraver T. James Farrell. Inscriptions on the obverse of the coin include “Liberty” with each letter separated by a star, “In God We Trust”, and the date “1994”. The reverse includes “United States of America”, “E Pluribus Unum”, the denomination “One Dollar”, and incorporated into the logo “World Cup USA 94”.
The reverse design featuring the 1994 World Cup logo adapted by Dean McMullen was used as the reverse design across all three coins of the program. This represented the first time the United States Mint had used a common design across commemorative coins of different denominations.
The 1994 World Cup Silver Proof Dollar was minted at San Francisco.
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.
