This special commemorative coin was issued to commemorate the 1984 Olympic Games, which occurred in Los Angeles, California. The coin was actually dated and issued in 1983. A special $1 coin was struck, of the same size and the same 90% silver composition as the old Morgan and Peace dollars. The front of the coin is titled "XXI Olympiad" and shows a Discus Thrower in the center, along with the date and "Los Angeles" and the date, 1983 and the 1984 games official symbol. On the reverse side is a majestic rendering of a Bald Eagle in high relief, with "United States of America" and "One Dollar" along the border. The total mintage for these coins was only 294,543, so they are sure to be scarce in days to come. Plus the 90% silver content gives this coin a silver content of right at 3/4 ounces of pure silver. Coin comes housed in an attractive mint issued cardboard display box with plush liner and re/white/blue sash running horizontally along the diagonal.
