$1 1996 Proof Rowing Reverse Olympic Coin Die--Cancelled


This is a 1996 proof rowing silver dollar die, used for striking commemorative dollar coins in honor of the rowing event in the olympic games. The die has been cancelled, and has an "X" across its reverse side. These dies were sold by the U.S. Mint as novelties, but never before or since then have they ever sold dies with design showing. The die comes with the felt bag, certificate of authenticity, and plastic cap, all as issued by the Mint.
