Why purchase this NGC certified 1995-D US Atlanta Olympic Cycling Commemorative in MS70 condition?

The 1995 D Olympics Cycling commemorative silver dollar was part of an elaborate coin program – the most expensive and complex ever approved by Congress. A total of 16 different coins – 32 issues in total - were issued to commemorate a single occasion – the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta. Congress saw it primarily as an easy, effortless means to obtain funding for the training of America’s athletes. Marketing surveys were conducted in which coin collectors expressed their reluctance to get involved. Yet, Congress pressed ahead. If it was not for international sales, the program most likely would have ended up in failure. This makes for a few rarities in this program, including this 1995-D Olympics Cycling Modern Silver Commemorative Dollar $1 MS 70 NGC.

The NGC population of this modern commemorative silver dollar is minuscule in comparison to the declared mintage figure of 19,662 coins – a low number in itself. This coin is the perfect coin as minted, which makes it highly sought after, especially at the price listed here. This is a .900 fine solid silver commemorative coin. Its silver content provides a protective value floor beyond its numismatic value.
