Why buy this 2-Piece 100th Anniversary Commemorative 2019-P American Legion Silver Dollar and Medal Set?
The American Legion marks its centennial anniversary in 2019, and the US Mint is marking the occasion with this two-piece set. The Legion was founded in France in 1919 on four pillars: Americanism, Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation, National Security, and Children and Youth. The set consists of a silver dollar and a medal. The former is available separately, while the latter is only available as part of the set. Each piece was struck from 26.73 g of .999 fine silver. The dollar bears the Philadelphia Mint's "P" mint mark.
Powerful Missing Star Design by Richard Masters
Richard Masters designed and Renata Gordon sculpted the medal's reverse, which features a field of stars that represents all American veterans, past, present, and future. One star is missing, replaced by an incuse star at the bottom. The incuse star represents those who died in service to the nation. Just above the incuse star is the inscription "SERVICE AND SACRIFICE." The obverse of the medal was designed by Benjamin Sowards and sculpted by Joseph Menna. It features five stars, one for each branch of the US military, next to an eagle, which is spreading its wings preparing to take flight. "HONORING AMERICA'S VETERANS" is inscribed on the rim frame.
Designed by Patricia Lucas-Morris and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso, the silver dollar's reverse consists of the crossed American flag and American Legion flag. A fleur de lis and the inscription "100 YEARS OF SERVICE" are in the "V" shape created by the crossed flags. The fleur de lis represents the establishment of the Legion in France. The obverse of the coin, which Paul C. Balan designed and Renata Gordon sculpted, features the Legion's label along with oak leaves and a lily.
