1995-P 1 Dollar Silver Cycling NGC PF69UCAM
A coin to honor an Olympics for the ages, and the fast-paced and grueling sport of cycling!
The summer of 1996 marked the 100th anniversary of the modern Olympic Games, made even more special because they would be hosted in Atlanta, Georgia. Fitting then, that the US Mint struck a series of $1 collectors coins highlighting some of the most popular sports of the Summer Olympics. These coins, including this beautiful $1 1996 Olympics Cycling Proof coin, were sized to match the specifications of the familiar and well-liked Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars. Other sports honored by this commemorative series include: gymnastics, paralympics, and track and field.
The set was made even more valuable as the US proved that silver—and gold—were its themes of these Olympics. That year, the US finished with the most gold medals (44) and silver medals (32) of any country in competition. Add to that the fact that the great American boxer, Mohammed Ali, ran the last leg of the torch relay and lighting the Olympic Cauldron? There could be no better reason than to add this patriotic coin to your collection. Fortunately, you can get yours now from GovMint.com!
America rolled through the 1996Olympics, and this coin was there!
The 1995-P $1 Cycling Proof coin was minted to cheer on the US men’s and women’s teams in the Olympics. The US secured a few medals in the cycling competition that year—including silver. Fitting then that this beautiful coin, minted in 90% fine silver, takes its place in your collection. It weighs 26.73 grams and is 38.1 mm in diameter.
- A CHALLENGING SPORT, AND AN ENDURING FAVORITE-- Cycling conjures up images of long distance treks across grueling hillsides, but Olympic cycling is a very diverse sport, featuring events that include road cycling, track cycling, and even mountain biking. The obverse of your coin, designed by U.S. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti, features three cyclists facing outward, the cyclist in the lead position standing to gain more speed. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "USA" surmounting the five interlocking Olympic rings, "XXVI OLYMPIAD," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date "1995." The reverse of the coin, designed by Wiliam Krawczewicz specifically for the centennial of the Olympic Games, features two clasped hands beneath the Olympic torch and rings. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "ATLANTA" "100" and "ONE DOLLAR."
- LOW MINTAGE FOR COMMEMORATIVE COINS-- The 1995-P $1 Cycling Proof coin was struck in remarkably low numbers for an Olympic coin, with only 118,795 pieces -- one of the lowest mintages of modern silver dollar commemorative proofs!
- BRILLIANTLY STRUCK, WITH A NEARLY FLAWLESS GRADE – The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation has given this coin a grade of NGC PR69, indicating that it will arrive virtually "as struck" from its minting at the Philadelphia Mint, with sharply defined, mirrored surfaces and exquisite detail!
