Comments

The 1995 Olympic Track and Field Silver Dollar was issued as part of a comprehensive sixteen coin program to commemorate the 1996 Olympic Games held in Atlanta, Georgia. The program included eight silver dollar, four clad half dollars, and four $5 gold coins issued over the course of two years.

The 1995 Track and Field Silver Dollar had a maximum authorized mintage of 750,000 coins across both proof and uncirculated versions. The proof coins were minted in Philadelphia and the uncirculated coins were minted at Denver. The coins were initially available for pre-issue discount prices individually or in multi-coin sets. After a specified period, regular pricing went into effect. Although the coins were a far way from reaching the maximum, the low sales had a later benefit in yielding low final mintages.
