The 1995 Olympic Gymnastics Silver Proof Dollar was issued as part of an ambitious range of commemorative coins issued for the XXVI Olympiad Summer Games held in Atlanta, Georgia. There were a total of 16 different coin designs issued from 1995 to 1996 to commemorate the event.
The obverse of the Gymnastics Silver Dollar was designed by James C. Sharpe. The obverse inscriptions include “
Liberty” the date “1995”, and “In God We Trust” with the USA Olympics logo.
The reverse of the coin features a design used in common for all of the 1995 Olympic Silver Dollars issued. This portrays the clasped hands of two athletes as designed by William Krawczewicz and modeled by T. James Ferrell. The inscriptions read “
United States of America”, “E Pluribus Unum”, “Atlanta” and “One Dollar”. Above the hands is a modern rendition of the Olympic torch.
The 1995 Gymnastics Silver Proof Dollar was produced at the Philadelphia 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.
