In 1988, the United States Mint issued special silver dollars in honor of the 1988 Summer Olympics and the participation of Team USA. The games were hosted in Seoul, South Korea, and the commemorative silver dollar marked Team USAs hopes for the games. Today, you have the chance to get 1988 US Mint Prestige Proof Sets online from Provident Metals.
The 1988 Summer Olympics were hosted by South Korea and the United States Mint marked the occasion with a commemorative silver dollar. These types of commemorative silver dollars were commonly included in US Mint Prestige Proof Sets in the 1980s and 1990s before other types of silver coin programs were available at the US Mint.
On the obverse side of the coins in the 1988 US Mint Prestige Proof Set are various different designs. The circulation coins feature the popular effigies of Presidents Lincoln, Jefferson, Roosevelt, Washington, and Kennedy on the US penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and half dollars in this set. The Olympic silver dollar features an image of the Olympic torch being lit by the flame of Lady Libertys torch.
The reverse field of the 1988 US Mint Prestige Proof Set coins comes with various designs such as the heraldic eagle, Great Seal of the United States, and other American symbolism. For the Olympic silver dollar, the design features the Olympic rings at the center with the initials USA above. The design is flanked by olive branches.
US Mint Prestige Proof Sets were predominantly produced by the United States Mint between 1982 and 1997. A staple of these sets was the inclusion of the five circulation denominations common in the United States, each of which is struck in proof on the standard circulation blanks.
These 1988 US Mint Prestige Proof Sets are available with US Mint presentation booklets. A total of six coins are included in the set, with the US penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and half dollar accompanied by the Olympic-themed silver dollar. All coins are proofs with frosted designs and mirrored fields.
