This 1995 Track and Field Silver Dollar commemorative was struck at the Denver Mint to commemorate the 1996 Olympic Summer Games held in Atlanta, Georgia. It shows two sprinters running toward the finish line and two hands clasped beneath the Olympic Torch. It's a one-year-only issue with an incredibly low Proof mintage of only 136,935 Silver Dollars. Each is struck in 26.73 grams of 90% silver. This example grades Proof-69 (PR69) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and is hand signed by John Mercanti, 12th Chief Engraver at the U.S. Mint.

Year of Issue 1995
Country United States
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
PR69
The second-highest grade a proof can obtain, based off the internationally accepted 70-point Sheldon grading scale. A distinction of Proof-69, otherwise known as PR69, means your almost-flawless proof showcases an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections. With quality well above of the majority of proofs in their respective series, many collectors prefer PR69-graded proofs 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.

From its humble beginnings on Seventh Street through four different locations, the United States Mint's "Mother Mint" at 151 North Independence Mall East in Philadelphia is the largest of its kind in the world. The Philadelphia Mint is home to die production for all U.S. coinage, as well as facilities that produce a daily average of 30 million coins worth about $1 million.
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.
