1983/84 Olympics Three Coin Proof Set

  The United States Mint issued three different coins to commemorate the summer olympics that were held in Los Angeles, Ca. in 1984. These silver and gold commemorative coins are minted in the same 90% fineness used on earlier U.S. coins of the same denominations. The uncirculated coins were produced at the Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco Mints while the Proof silver dollars were struck at San Francisco. The Proof $10 gold was produced at all three mints while the West Point Mint produced the $10 coin in both Proof and Uncirculated condition.

The 1983 Olympic silver dollar was designed by Elizabeth Jones, then Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. The obverse features a discus thrower inspired by the ancient sculpture of Myron. The reverse features the majestic American Eagle.

The 1984 Olympic silver dollar was designed by Robert Graham, an American sculptor, who also created the sculpture placed at the entrance of the Los Angeles Coliseum. The obverse features Graham's sculputre with the Coliseum in the background. The reverse features an American eagle.

The 1984 Olympic $10 gold coin was designed by John Mercanti based on a concept by James Peed, an artist at the Mint. The obverse features two runners bearing the Olympic torch and the reverse depicts an American eagle motif similar to the Great Seal of the United States. This $10 gold coin was the first gold coin struck by the Mint since 1933 and the first coin to bear the "W" mintmark of the West Point Mint.
