coin packaging1994 World Cup Soccer Proof Dollar

The 1994 FIFA World Cup Tournament Proof Dollar commemorates an event unique in world soccer history. Although not known as a soccer nation, the United States was chosen as the host nation, and produced a tournament that surpassed all former world tournament attendance records.

This beautiful proof dollar captures the excitement of the event. The obverse of the coin shows two world-class competitors converging on a soccer ball, symbolic of the fierce competition among the 24 teams that qualified from among 141 nations. Brazil became the first nation to win four World Cup titles, and the World Cup final game was the first ever to be decided on penalties. The reverse of this brilliant coin is the design which was the official United States logo for the 1994 FIFA World Cup.

The games were held in nine cities across the United States, from June 17 to July 17, 1994. The most used venue was the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, which also hosted the final game.

The 1994 FIFA World Cup Tournament Proof Dollar was minted by the United States Mint in San Francisco. It is presented in a beautiful case, suitable for display or safe-keeping.
