The 1992 Olympic $5 Gold Coin was issued to commemorate the participation of the United States in the 1992 Summer Olympics Games. The program also included a clad half dollar and silver dollar, with surcharges raised from sales used to help train American athletes.
Promotional materials distributed by the United States Mint included a large hologram with the design of the gold coin. When the brochure is moved, it appears that the sprinter is running forward.
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.
