Comments

The 1995 Paralympics Silver Dollar was issued together with eight other silver dollars and eight other gold and clad coins to commemorate the Atlanta, Georgia XXVI Olympiad Summer Games. This silver dollar features a blind runner and is sometimes referred to as the 1995 Blind Runner Silver Dollar.

The coin was produced in uncirculated version at the Denver Mint and proof version at the Philadelphia Mint. The coins were available individually or as part of some multi coin sets. The maximum authorized mintage was a lofty 750,000 coins, which was not reached. The low sales figures translated into low mintages, which makes these coins sell for more than their original issue prices on the secondary market.
