The obverse image is remarkably similar to an image of Nolan Ryan which appeared on a 1991 Fleer baseball card. The designer of the coin John R. Deecken denied that there was any connection. But as seen below even the wrinkles in Ryans jersey match the picture in the card. Buy a good copy of the card and keep it in the mint box.
It makes a good conversation piece and couldn't hurt the value of the coin.


Notably, the Denver Mint coin features edge lettering. “XXV Olympiad” is written four times around the edge against a reeded background. This is the first time edge lettering had been used for a commemorative coin issue of the United States.
