Why add the 1996-P $1 Olympic Proof Silver Commemorative-Tennis & Cancelled U.S. Mint Reverse Die Set to your collection?

This 1996-P $1 Olympic Proof Silver Commemorative-Tennis & Cancelled U.S. Mint Reverse Die Set is a great way to collect. Not only do you get the stunning silver dollar coin but the die that struck the reverse of the coin to display with it as a unique conversation piece.

The US Mint actively issues coins to commemorate the Olympic Games and these coins have been very popular with collectors. This dollar commemorates the 1996 Atlanta Games and was struck on a 90% silver planchet containing the standard .7736 oz. of silver. The coin is legal tender in the US and was struck to proof quality at the Philadelphia Mint.

The obverse features a woman playing tennis. She is pictured with the Olympic rings as she swings her racket toward the ball. This was designed by James C. Sharpe.

The reverse of the coin was designed by Thomas D. Rogers and shows the Olympic Torch. Inscriptions included "Atlanta 1996" and "Centennial Olympic Games."

The die features the same design as this coin's reverse. Much of the design is evident as the die has been cancelled with an "X" or cross. It is unusual for die to have much of the design evident on the die, often the entire design is obscured or removed.
