Stunning Commemorative Imagery

Obverse: The obverse features a tripled graphic of a discus thrower, an image inspired by the iconic "Discobolus" sculpture by the 5th century BC Athenian artist Myron of Eleutherae. The athlete is accompanied by the Olympic rings and "star in motion" emblems, along with the inscriptions "LOS ANGELES XXIII OLYMPIAD," "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "1983" and "S."

Reverse: The reverse is graced with a handsome bald eagle, with the inscription "E PLURIBUS UNUM" beneath its beak. The image is encircled by a border containing the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "ONE DOLLAR," which are separated by ornamental branches of laurel. The coin's designs are credited to Elizabeth Jones, who was appointed the eleventh U.S. Mint Chief Engraver by President Ronald Reagan in 1981.
