Andropov's Nyet Steals Olympic Glory

Russian Premier Yuri Andropov took the entire Communist Bloc out of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, stealing the spotlight from the Olympic feats of Mary Lou Retton, Carl Lewis, and Greg Louganis. Another victim was this first-ever U.S. commemorative proof Silver Dollar, which slipped under the radar, and is still hard to find today. It was struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1983, and shows a discus thrower and eagle. We located a small cache, and you can now get this 1983-S Olympic Silver Dollar - and save to boot.

Year of Issue 1983

Condition
Proof
A specially made coin distinguished by sharpness of detail and usually with a mirror-like surface. Proof refers to the method of manufacture and is not a condition. Proof coins are struck on specially-made planchets using polished dies. Proof coins are minted primarily for collectors and are not released for general circulation.
Currency Type Dollar
Mint Name
San Francisco - S
Established in 1853 to strike coins from California’s newly-discovered vast reserves of gold, the San Francisco branch of the United States Mint is famous for the quality, lustrous Morgan Silver Dollars produced at "The Granite Lady" from 1878 to 1921. After moving to a new building in 1937, coin production at the San Francisco mint shut down in 1955. A shortage caused regular coin production to resume in 1965. While the mintage of circulating coins ceased in 1981, proof coins and commemoratives are still struck at the San Francisco Mint today.
