The US Mint started manufacturing commemorative gold coins in 1892. These releases were made to honor important people and events throughout the history of the United States. The first of these manufactured coins marked the 400-year anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ expedition across the Atlantic ocean.
The US Mint continued producing commemorative gold coins up until 1933, and did not resume producing commemorative gold coins in full until 1986, with the release of the American Eagle gold coins. Two years before that, however, the US Mint released commemorative gold coins such as this one listed on GoldClub Direct.
The first release of $10 Gold Commemorative Coins by the United States Mint came in 1984, which celebrated the Los Angeles Olympic Games. These $10 Commemorative Coins are considered legal tender but are not intended to be circulated. The coin you receive will be shipped to you in either proof or uncirculated versions and will be packaged in original government capsules.
A common obverse face available on $10 US Mint Commemorative Gold Coins features two runners carrying the Olympic torch. This face also includes engravings of “Liberty”, the Olympic rings, and the Roman numerals of the Olympic games. The reverse of this coin includes the seal of the United States of America. This listing might also include other commemorative coins with varying designs.
