Why add this 1996-W Olympics Cauldron $5 Commemorative Gold Proof to your collection?

The Centennial Olympic Games were held in Atlanta, Georgia in the summer of 1996. To celebrate the milestone event, the U.S. Mint issued sixteen different commemorative designs between 1995-1996 honoring specific events, the torch runner, and the stadium. This stunning 21.6 mm diameter proof pays tribute to Atlanta's magnificent Olympic Cauldron, struck by the West Point Mint from 0.242 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold, with a final reported mintage of 38,555.

Spectacular commemorative design

Designed by artist Frank Gasparro, the coin's obverse features an athlete reaching up to transfer the flame of the Olympic torch to Atlanta's Olympic cauldron, accompanied by the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "1996," with the USA Olympic logo.

The flaming torch logo of the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games adorns the reverse, flanked by branches of laurel, with "ATLANTA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "W" inscribed below. The design created by William Krawczewicz is surrounded by the additional inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "FIVE DOLLARS."

Flawless Proof 70 Ultra Cameo

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this 1996-W Olympics Cauldron $5 Gold commemorative coin a perfect Proof 70. Enclosed in a protective NGC holder, this gorgeous coin has also earned the certification of Ultra Cameo, for the dramatic contrast between the beautifully frosted design elements and the highly polished mirrored backgrounds.
