The 1995 Olympic Track and Field Silver Dollar was issued as part of a comprehensive sixteen coin program to commemorate the 1996 Olympic Games held in Atlanta, Georgia.
The obverse of the Track and Field Silver Dollar features two sprinters running towards the finish line. The lanes of the track 2,3,4,5 are visible along with inscriptions “Liberty”, “XXVI Olympiad”, “In God We Trust”, “1995” and the USA Olympics logo. This was designed by John Mercanti of the United States Mint.
The reverse design features two hands clasped beneath the Olympic torch. This is intended to represent the brotherhood and team spirit of the Olympic Games. The inscriptions read “United States of America”, “E Pluribus Unum”, “Atlanta” and “One Dollar”. The reverse was designed by William Krawczewicz and modeled by T. James Ferrell.
The 1995 Track and Field Silver Proof Dollars were minted in Philadelphia.
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.
