  • Description:

    Like the Olympics, the Special Olympics is held every four years and alternates between summer and winter games. These games are held for both adults and children with intellectual and physical disabilities. Special Olympics continues to be the largest sports organization of its kind. The United States hosted the games from its inception in 1968 until 2003 when it was held in Dublin. The founder of Special Olympics is Eunice Kennedy Shriver. The organization has done much to change the American population’s view on those with disabilities.

    The obverse of the 1995 Proof Special Olympics World Games Silver dollar is an engraving of a portrait of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the founder of Special Olympics. She faces to the left from the viewer’s perspective and has her hair down as was her wont. Along the edge of the coin are the words “Special Olympics World Games”. The obverse was designed by Jamie Wyeth. The reverse of the coin shows the Special Olympics medal along with a rose. The reverse reads, “As we hope for the best in them, hope is reborn in us Eunice Kennedy Shriver”. The rose, curiously, shows only one thorn. The reverse of the coin was designed by Thomas D Rogers.

    The 1995 Proof Special Olympics World Games Commemorative Silver dollar was designed to commemorate the ninth Special Olympics World Summer Games which were held in New Haven, CT.
