USA, $1, 1984.  Olympics commemorative.

From numista.com:

The 1984 coin's obverse depicts the entrance of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which prominently features two headless sculptures. The coin was designed by Robert Graham, who had created the headless bronze sculptures.

But why are the sculptures headless?
