Comments

The maximum authorized mintage for the 1988 Seoul Olympics Silver Dollar was 10 million pieces. The final mintage did not come close to reaching this amount, with a final tally of around 1.55 million. The uncirculated version was minted at the Denver Mint and carried the “D” mint mark. The proof version was minted in San Francisco and carried the “S” mint mark. Two coin sets containing the silver dollar and $5 gold were issued in proof and uncirculated, as well as a four coin set with all versions.
