Comments

The 1996 Paralympics Silver Dollar was issued was part of an extensive program of commemorative coins for the XXVI Olympiad held in Atlanta, Georgia. There were a total of sixteen different coins issued for the program over the course of two years.

The 1995 Paralympics Silver Dollar had an authorized mintage of 1,000,000 to cover the uncirculated coins produced at the Denver Mint and proof coins produced at the Philadelphia Mint. Despite the high expectations, less than 100,000 coins were sold in total. This eventually worked in the favor of collectors who purchased the coins since the low mintages drove high premiums on the secondary market, particularly for the uncirculated version of the coin which had a scant mintage of only 14,497 coins.
