Although these dollars are only 50% silver, they make nice inexpensive additions to my world crown collection.
@Morgandude11 What is this coin commemorating? I haven't seen this design before, and I'm having a hard time figuring out if the guy on the obverse is speed skating, wrestling, jumping hurdles?
Great toning. Very nice coin!
It is a World University games in Edmonton commemorative. I think it is supposed to be speed skating. It was a fairly limited issue for 1983.
Actually, looking at the figure closely, I'd say hurdles. (track and field event)
