The 1992 Olympic Silver Dollar was issued for the Games of the XXV Olympiad. Surcharges raised from the sale of the clad, silver and gold commemorative coins included in the program were used to help train American athletes.
The 1992 Summer Olympic Games, officially known as the Games of the XXV Olympiad, was an international multi-sport event played in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain in 1992. Beginning in 1994, the International Olympic Committee decided to hold the games in alternating even-numbered years; as a result, the 1992 Summer Olympics were the last competition to be staged in the same year as the Winter Olympics. The games were the first to be unaffected by boycotts since 1972.
