Owner's Comments

1988-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Olympics { PCGS-3 } (Mar'2009) Mintage: 1,359,366 (proof) Making note of US participation at the Olympic Games in Seoul North Korea, after the US boycotted the Moscow Summer Games in 1980, and Moscow returned the favor at the Games in Los Angeles in 1984, this piece has unusually perfect broad expansive fields, deeply mirrored on both sides and contrasted by heavily frosted simple devices. Again, the silver dollar is sans an eagle on the reverse. This design features the flame of the torch of Lady Liberty merging with that of the Olympic torch, and world peace through sports seems to be the theme.
