Why order this Commemorative 2012-W Infantry Soldier Silver Dollar?
The US Armed Forces has its origins in the Second Continental Congress, which authorized ten companies of light infantry in June of 1775. Since then, the Infantry has suffered three quarters of America's historic casualties of war. In 2012, this coin was released to raise awareness of the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center, as well as to raise funds for the National Infantry Foundation. This piece is an excellent choice for any collector who honors the sacrifices made by the members of the US Armed Forces.
Powerful Infantryman Design by Joel Iskowitz and Michael Gaudioso
Obverse: The obverse image was designed by Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso. It features a modern infantryman charging while calling on his men to follow him. He is flanked by inscriptions of the date, "2012," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," while "LIBERTY" is inscribed along the rim.
Reverse: Ronald Sanders designed the reverse, which is the branch insignia of the Infantry. It consists of two crossed rifles. The face value of the coin, "ONE DOLLAR," is inscribed just below the insignia. The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the second statutory motto, "E PLURIBUS UNUM," are inscribed at the top and bottom of this face, respectively.
