Why does this exceptionally graded 1996-W Olympic Flag Bearer Commemorative $5 gold bullion coin deserve a place in your collection?

In the summer of 1996, the city of Atlanta, Georgia, was host to the Games of the XXVI Olympiad, which are also known as the Centennial Olympic Games. From 1995-1996, the U.S. Mint issued an impressive series of sixteen commemorative coins in celebration of the event. This coin dedicated to the American Olympic Team and its flag bearer, is one of the four $5 gold coins included in the collection. The bullion version of the coin is notably one of the first modern U.S. Commemorative coins with a mintage of less than 10,000 pieces.

  • This 1996-W Olympic Flag Bearer Commemorative coin was struck at the West Point Mint.
  • The bullion coin is crafted from 0.242 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold.
  • The $5 legal tender coin features a 21.60 mm diameter.
  • Final mintage is reported to be just 9,174.

Reverse: The stylized flaming torch and stars logo of the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games is centered on the reverse, flanked by curving branches of laurel, with "ATLANTA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the Mint mark "W" inscribed below. The design is encircled by the additional inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "FIVE DOLLARS."
