Why add this half dollar commemorating the U.S. Marshals Service 225th Anniversary to your collection?

This half dollar was one of three coins released in 2015 by the U.S. Mint to memorialize the 225th Anniversary of the U.S. Marshals Service. Congressional legislation authorizing the series required that the half dollar feature imagery symbolizing the history and influence of the Service. This copper-nickel clad half dollar measuring 30.61 mm in diameter was struck at the Denver Mint, its final mintage reported to be 38,149.

Beautifully Detailed Commemorative Design

The obverse, designed by Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso, depicts two U.S. Marshalls: a modern day female in tactical gear and a male in old west style clothing standing beside a horse. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "2015" and "IN GOD WE TRUST," with the anniversary dates "1789-2014."

A collage of images alluding to the varied responsibilities of the U.S. Marshals Service is featured on the reverse, including Lady Justice holding the U.S. Marshals Service Star, the U.S. Constitution, handcuffs and a whiskey jug. The design by Susan Gamble, engraved by Phebe Hemphill, is accompanied by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "HALF DOLLAR."
