Why add this 2012-W Proof Silver Dollar coin commemorating the Soldiers of the United States Army Infantry to your collection?
In 2012, the U.S. Mint's Commemorative Coin Program included a silver dollar honoring the U.S. Army Infantry. Design of the coin celebrates the values of infantrymen: loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage. Established as a branch of United States Army by the Continental Congress in 1775, the Infantry is the oldest branch of the Army.
Powerful Commemorative Imagery
Obverse: A helmeted soldier in a contemporary style camouflage uniform is depicted on the obverse. He marches towards the left on uneven terrain, while grasping a rifle and gesturing forward with his right arm as a demonstration of the enthusiastic "Follow Me" motto of the infantry. Surrounding inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "2012" and the West Point Mint's "W" Mint mark.
Reverse: Centered on the reverse is the branch insignia of the infantry, which is represented by a pair of vintage 1795 Springfield muskets in a crossed position. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" is inscribed above, with "ONE DOLLAR" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" below.
Beautifully Minted Proof Coin
This 2012-W Infantry Soldier Commemorative Proof Silver Dollar coin is in magnificent condition, featuring an exceptionally sharp strike, with exquisitely finished frosted and mirrored surfaces, and outstanding eye appeal. The silver dollar is encapsulated and nestled in its original Mint branded clamshell display case, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
