number. By a margin of nearly 10 to 1, the majority of coins sold were Proofs, leaving a net mintage of 16,258 of the Uncirculated 1996-D Centennial Olympics (Rowing) dollar. This figure makes it among the scarcest of all U.S. commemorative dollar coins ever issued. Another interesting feature of the Uncirculated 1996-D Centennial Olympics (Rowing) dollar is that it has the lowest combined certified population of any modern coin. In other words, combining the figures of NGC and PCGS, the lowest total number of coins graded belongs to this issue. This information further supports the notion that sales were relatively strong outside of the traditional numismatic marketplace and perhaps went to rowers as well as collectors. Any mintage figure below 20,000 pieces puts pressure on the supply. Dealers actively seeking such coins need to pay a premium, which keeps the price of this issue comparatively high—among the highest of all modern commemorative silver dollars. The coin is simply not available in large numbers on the marketplace; this trend is not changing, making this coin an enduring key of the modern commemorative series.
