1983-P 1 Dollar Silver Olympic Discus Thrower BU
The First United States Commemorative Silver Dollar since 1900!
To say the least, the 1984 Olympic Summer Games in Los Angeles were a big deal. How big? So big that the occasion spurred the U.S. Mint to issue an Olympic Silver Dollar as its second commemorative coin since 1954 -- which in of itself was the first commemorative silver dollar since 1900!
And what a Commemorative Silver Dollar it is! Designed by beloved U.S. Mint Chief Engraver Elizabeth Jones, the obverse of this commemorative reinterprets Myron's Greek discus thrower into a modern design of motion and fluidity. Speaking of, this side also features the famous "Stars in Motion" logo of the 1984 Olympics along with the date of 1983, mintmark and the inscription "LOS ANGELES XXIII OLYMPIAD LIBERTY." Flip the coin over and you'll find a majestic bald eagle.
Struck in 26.73 grams of 90% silver, this Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) commemorative has the same composition as the Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars. The landmark Los Angeles games ushered in a new Olympic era while bringing fame to athletes like Mary Lou Retton, Carl Lewis and Greg Louganis. This 1983 Olympic Discus Thrower Commemorative is a great piece of Olympic history, of U.S. Mint history, of numismatic history, of history, period! So what are you waiting for? Get off the sidelines and add this historic Olympic silver Dollar to your collection today!
