Why purchase this Commemorative 1995-P Civil War Battlefields Silver Dollar?

The Civil War was the most challenging event in American history. Family members were often divided and fought for opposing sides. In the late 19th century, efforts began to preserve Civil War battlefields, which continue to pay homage to those who fought and serve as persistent reminders of the horrors of war. The U.S. Mint released this coin in 1995 to mark the centennial anniversary of efforts to preserve the war's battlefields.

  • The coin was issued to mark the centennial anniversary of Civil War Battlefield preservation.

Moving Battlefield Design by Don Troiani

Obverse: Don Troiani's obverse design shows an infantryman caring for a wounded enemy. The powerful image calls to mind the heart wrenching impact of the Civil War, which often had men in the same family fighting against each other. Inscriptions on the obverse read, "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "1995."

Reverse: The bulk of John Mercanti's reverse design consists of a quote from Joshua Chamberlain, a college teacher from Maine who was one of the heroes of Gettysburg. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" are inscribed at the top of this face. The coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," is noted near the bottom.
