Why order this 2-Piece 2019-P 100th Anniversary American Legion Commemorative Silver Dollar and Medal Set?

Share in the U.S Mint's commemoration of the centennial anniversary of the foundation of the American Legion with this coin and medal set. The Legion was founded on four pillars, National Security, Americanism, Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation, and Children and Youth. Both pieces in the set were struck from 26.73 g of .999 fine silver, and the dollar bears the Philadelphia Mint's "P" mint mark. The silver medal is available only through this set, though a bronze version will be offered next year. Just 10,000 sets were issued. Both pieces will arrive in GEM Proof condition.

Poignant Missing Star Design by Richard Masters

Richard Masters designed and Renata Gordon sculpted the medal's reverse. A field of stars represents America's past, present, and future veterans, In the middle, one star is missing, representing the nation's loss. Replacing it is a single incuse star at the bottom of this face to represent those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Just above that incuse star is the inscription "SERVICE AND SACRIFICE." The medal's obverse design, an eagle spreading its wings as it prepares for flight, represents initiative, determination, and personal courage. Five stars to the right of the bird represent the five branches of the military. A rim frame bears the inscriptions "HONORING AMERICA'S VETERANS." This face was designed by Benjamin Sowards and sculpted by Joseph Menna.

Paul C. Balan designed and Renata Gordon sculpted the obverse of the silver dollar. The American Legion emblem is at the center, backed by oak leaves and a lily.Patricia Lucas-Morris's reverse design, which was sculpted by Michael Gaudioso, features the crossed flags of the United States and the American Legion. Above them are a fleur de lis, which represents the foundation of the Legion in France, and the inscription "100 YEARS OF SERVICE."
