  • Title: 1996 S Olympic Swimming Half Dollar MS69 PCGS
  • Metal: Silver

Full Description

Long considered a key date of commemorative coins, the 1996 S Olympic Swimming Half Dollar had the lowest mintage of them all. Demand for this coin was very low at first, but has increased over the years. This copper and nickel coin with a pure copper center is a regular strike coin in near-perfect MS69 condition as graded by PCGS. The price is still very low compared to other commemorative coins of its day, which makes this coin one of the best values in commemoratives.


The front of this coin depicts a team USA swimmer rising to the surface for a breath at mid-stroke. Below the swimmer is shown the lane divider, which also forms a line separating the swimmer’s image from the inscriptions below. These include ‘Liberty,’ ‘In God We Trust, the year ‘1996’ and the initials of the coin’s designer, William J. Krawczewicz and engraver Edgar Steevers.


The back of the coin was designed by Malcom Farley and engraved by Thomas D. Rogers, Sr. It features the Olympic Committee logo and ‘100’ to denote the centennial year of 1996. Also on the reverse are the words ‘Atlanta 1996.’ ‘United States of America,’ ‘Half Dollar,’ and ‘E Pluribus Unum.’
