Description

The 1988 winter Olympics marked the first time in the nation’s history in which the winter Olympics were hosted and the second time in which the Olympics games were hosted up until that point. These historical events were monumental in focusing the world’s attention on the unparalleled glacial beauty of Canada, in addition to many endearing events, such as the historical debut of the Jamaican bobsled team. The 1988 Olympic games left a lasting legacy in both Calgary, and Canada, reigniting national fervour for winter sports while leaving the Olympic Oval, Canada Olympic Park, and Canmore Nordic center in its wake. These 1 oz, 925 pure silver coins of the Royal Canadian Mint celebrate the historic 1988 winter Olympic games.

The reverse of these proof coins contains an Olympic themed illustration of various athletes in competition. The images are brought to life with the coins high relief effect, over a blank, polished, proof finish coin field. The host city, year, Olympic emblem, and denominational value also feature.

The reverse depicts Susanna Blunt’s rendition of Queen Elizabeth in her younger years, over a blank coin field.
