Out of the 10,000 available, about 940 coins remain of the limited edition 100th Anniversary American Legion proof silver dollar and American Veterans Silver Medal coin set.
The set features a 99.9 percent silver medal that will only be available in this set. The front of the medal portrays a bald eagle spreading its wings as it prepares for flight, suggesting the initiative, determination and personal courage required by those who choose to serve in the U.S. armed forces. It also features five stars to represent the five branches of the military and the inscription “Honoring America’s Veterans” encircles the design. The reverse of the medal depicts a field of stars symbolizing all American veterans – past, present and future. A lone incused star below the field represents a veteran who has made the ultimate sacrifice in defending our country. The absence of this star in the field conveys a sense of loss to the nation. And the inscription “Service and Sacrifice” is featured.
The set sells for $99.95. For purchasing information, visit www.legion.org/coin.
