Comments

The 1996 Olympic Tennis Silver Dollar was issued in commemoration of the XXVI Olympiad in Atlanta, Georgia. It was part of an extensive program, which included a total of sixteen different coins struck in clad, silver, and gold, and released over the course of two years.

The 1996 Tennis Silver Dollar was produced in uncirculated version at the Denver Mint and proof version at the Philadelphia Mint. The overall mintage was limited to 1,000,000 coins, which was an increase from the level set for the prior year’s Olympic Silver Dollars. Less coins were actually sold with the final tally narrowly exceeding 100,000. The low mintages for this coin now drive significant premiums, particularly for the uncirculated version.
