In 1988, the U.S. Mint's commemorative coin program honored the athletes of the U.S. Olympic Team who participated in the Games of the XXIV Olympiad, held in Seoul, Korea, with coins struck from silver and gold. This 21.6 mm diameter commemorative coin dated 1988 was struck at the West Point Mint from 0.242 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold with a final reported mintage of 62,913.

Gorgeous Olympic Themed Designs

The obverse depicts Nike, the goddess of Victory, crowned with a wreath of olive leaves secured by a ribbon inscribed "IN GOD WE TRUST." The beautifully designed image created by Elizabeth Jones, the eleventh Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, is accompanied by the inscriptions "1988" and "LIBERTY."

Featured on the reverse is a stylized representation of the Olympic cauldron and flame with the "W" West Point Mintmark to the right.
