This impressive, selectively colorized, antique-finish coin, struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, memorializes Virginia's 1781 Battle of Yorktown, the final major land battle of the American Revolutionary War and the famed commander of the American forces, General George Washington. Mintage of the 40 mm diameter coin is limited to 5,000.
