Why order this 100th Anniversary Commemorative 2019-D American Legion Half Dollar Clad Proof?
From its humble beginnings with an American Expeditionary Force holding a caucus in Paris on March 15-17, 1919, the American Legion grew into the largest wartime veterans service organization in America. The Legion promotes patriotism and honor through programs serving veterans, active duty military members, and youth. One of its most famous programs is American Legion Baseball. The organization marks its 100th anniversary in 2019, and the U.S Mint is joining in the celebration with three new coins. One of them is this Clad Half dollar, which bears the "D" mint mark of the Denver Mint. This coin is part of a mintage of 750,000 pieces, which also include proofs.
Powerful Pledge of Allegiance Design by Richard Masters
Two young children pledge their allegiance to America's flag on Richard Masters's obverse. The smaller of the two, a girl, dons her grandfather's American Legion hat. The opening words of the Pledge are inscribed at the bottom, reading, "I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG..."
"...OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" features on Masters's reverse. Above those words is a view of the American flag flying atop a flagpole as seen from the children's perspective. The American Legion's emblem is at the top of the design. Rim inscriptions read, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) and "HALF DOLLAR."
