Why add this perfectly graded $5 Gold Proof commemorating the 1996 Olympic Flag Bearer to your collection?

In celebration of the Centennial Olympic Games held in Atlanta, Georgia in 1996, the U.S. Mint released an impressive series of twelve silver and four gold commemorative coins from 1995-1996. This proof honoring the American Flag Bearer was struck by the West Point Mint from 0.242 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold, with a final reported mintage of 32,886.

Exciting Flag Bearer Design

The obverse depicts a parade of American athletes waving as they enter the Olympic Stadium, with the team's flag bearer dominating the center of the image. The design by Patricia L. Verani includes the USA Olympic logo along with the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "1996."

Surrounded by branches of laurel, the flaming torch and stars logo of the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games is featured on the reverse, with "ATLANTA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "W" inscribed below. William Krawczewicz's design is surrounded by the additional inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "FIVE DOLLARS."
