United States of America, Pair of American Olympic Proof Silver Dollars

The United States held the Summer Olympics in 1984 in Los Angeles, California. these were the first Olympic Games to be professionally run and the first to make a profit. The United States Mint issued two Proof Silver Dollars to raise money to pay for these games. The difference between the cost and the selling price went to the Olympic Committee. In 1983 they issued a Silver Dollar with a modern triple vision of the Discus Thrower and the head of an American Bald Eagle on the reverse. In 1984 they issued a Silver Dollar with the nude but headless sculptures at the entrance to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The reverse had the American Bald Eagle in full stance. Both are struck in 900 fine silver. Today the Royal Mint charges £80.00 each for a silver Proof Crown, so I think that our price of £69.50 for both American Silver Dollars is quite fair; remember our price includes the Government’s 20% VAT!
