The 1992 Olympic Half Dollar was issued along with separate gold and silver coins for the 1992 Olympic Games. The summer games were held in Barcelona, Spain and the winter games were held in Albertville and Savoie, France.
The obverse design of the half dollar features a female gymnast in motion against the background of an American flag. Inscriptions read “In God We Trust”, “1991″, and “Liberty”. The Olympic rings with USA also appear. The obverse was designed by William C. Cousins.

On the reverse of the coin is an image of the Olympic torch and an olive branch designed by Steven M Bieda. The inscriptions above and below read “United States of America” and “Half Dollar”. A central inscription reads “Citius Altius Fortius” which is Latin for “Faster, Higher, Stronger”.

The maximum authorized mintage for the 1992 Olympic Half Dollar was set at 6 million, which proved excessive compared to the final sales. Proof versions of the coins were struck at the San Francisco Mint and uncirculated versions were struck at the Philadelphia Mint. The coins were sold individually, or in two and three coin uncirculated or proof sets, and a six coin commemorative set.

As an incentive to collectors, the US Mint included cards with authentic American Olympic athlete’s autographs. The autograph cards were included in the two and three coin proof sets and six coin sets while supplies lasted.
