Mercanti-Signed 1983-S Discus Thrower Silver Dollar

In 1983, the U.S. Mint Struck its first Commemorative Silver Dollar since 1900, and it was the 1983-S Olympic Silver Dollar featuring a discuss thrower. Struck to celebrate the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games, the coin was designed by John Mercanti.

John Mercanti was the 12th Chief Engraver at the U.S. Mint. During his tenure, he produced more coin designs than any other Chief Engraver in the mint's history - more than 100! His most enduring may be his reverse for the American Eagle Silver Dollar. Now, you can secure the new 1983-S Olympic Games Silver Dollar graded near-perfect Mint State-69 (MS69) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS)! Each label is hand-signed by Mr. Mercanti and sealed in the holder with the coin to assure the provenance forever. Coins are hot; famous autographs are hot - here's a great opportunity for once-in-a-lifetime designer-signed Olympic Commemorative Silver Dollar. Call now before they're gone!

Year of Issue 1983
Composition Silver
Purity 0.9000
Condition
Graded
Coins that are inspected, evaluated and graded by an independent, third party grading service. After a grade is assigned, each coin is sonically sealed in an acrylic "slab," preserving the coin's condition.
Grade
MS69
The second-highest grade a coin can obtain, based off the internationally accepted 70-point Sheldon grading scale. A distinction of Mint State-69, otherwise known as MS69, means your almost-flawless coin showcases an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections. With quality well above of the majority of coins in their respective series, many collectors prefer MS69-graded coins for their balance of collector status and affordability.
Pedigree
Mercanti Signed
Since 1792, there have ONLY been 12 official and prominent Chief Engravers of the U.S. Mint. This prestigious position is highly important as the Chief Engraver oversees the production of all coinage for circulation and for collectors. John Mercanti was the Chief Engraver from 2006 to 2010 but started at the Mint in 1974. John Mercanti has produced more coin and medal designs than any employee in United States Mint history (dating back to 1792). He designed the reverse of the Silver Eagle and the obverse of the Platinum Eagle that has been struck in proof condition annually since 1997. He designed quite a few modern gold and silver commemoratives in addition to five states in the States Quarter Program. As a testament to his legacy at the U.S. Mint, the coin's label prominently features his hand-signed signature.

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.
U.S. Mint
Created by the United States Congress through the Coinage Act of 1792, the United States Mint opened its first building in Philadelphia in 1793. Today, the U.S. Mint strikes circulating coins, as well as special collector coins and sets at the "Mother Mint" of Philadelphia and the branch mints of Denver, San Francisco and West Point.
