Why purchase this 1997-P Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Silver Dollar?
In 1997, the U.S. Mint issued this commemorative silver dollar to mark the sixth anniversary of the dedication of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. Updated annually, the memorial currently honors more than 22,000 officers who have perished in the line of duty in law enforcement service.
Beautiful Memorial Design
Obverse: The obverse depicts two officers respectfully touching the name of a fallen officer on the memorial. Inscriptions include "NATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS MEMORIAL," "LIBERTY," "1997" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." This heartfelt image is adapted from a photograph taken by acclaimed Washington D.C. area photographer Larry Ruggeri.
Reverse: Centered on the reverse is the official emblem of the National Law Enforcement Memorial, a single rose lying across a shield, a poignant symbol honoring the sacrifice of fallen officers. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "TO SERVE AND PROTECT," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "P" and "ONE DOLLAR." The coin's imagery is credited to sculptor Alfred Maletsky, who won the Coin of the Year Award for his design of the New Jersey State Quarter in 2001.
