These coins were the first Olympic commemorative coins ever issued by the United States Mint. The gold coin struck for this set was also the first gold coin struck by the US mint since 1933 when the US mint abruptly, after more than a century, abandoned gold coinage. The 1983 silver proof coin in this set was also the first commemorative silver dollar issued by the mint in over 80 years when it was produced in 1983 and was the second of the modern commemoratives issued (the first of the modern commemoratives being the 1982 George Washington Silver Half Dollars). Since these coins were issued in 1983/1984 by the US mint, the mint continued to mint gold and silver commemorative coins. To date the mint has issued 27 different coins for the Olympics including for 24 Olympic Games, 2 Paralympics and one Special Olympics.
The velvet and satin presentation case features the XXIII Summer Olympic Games moving star symbol representing international athletes' pursuit of excellence and the traditional five Olympic rings representing universal brotherhood among the continents of the word. The red, white and blue ribbon highlights the American location of the 1984 Games. The coins (and original packaging) in the picture are the coins you will receive.
Included with the coins are all of the original government packaging including the certificates of authenticity. Note that there are areas of wear on the packaging, especially the outer packaging.
