What many collectors don’t know is that the United States Mint actually created a special release silver dollar way back in 1988 for the Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea! These ‘secret’ silver dollars are a collector’s dream, and very hard to find in collector’s quality proof condition.
The Olympic Highlights:
This 1988 special release silver dollar is made from 90% Silver
Minted at the Old Granite Lady (San Francisco Mint)
Obverse: displays two hands, with the one on the left side holding the “runner’s torch” (the one that travels the world in the years leading up to the games) while lighting the Olympic Torch being held by the hand on the right (this is the torch that lights the fire to officially start the games!)
Reverse: Olive Branches frame the design on both sides, with the center of the design being the letters ‘USA’ above the 5 Olympic rings. The Motto ‘E Pluribus Unum’ sits just below the 5 rings.
The Reverse Was Designed by Sherl Joseph Winter, while the obverse was created by Patricia Lewis Vernai.
