Why buy this 100th Anniversary Commemorative 2019-D American Legion Clad Half Dollar?
The American Legion marks its centennial anniversary in 2019, and the U.S Mint is commemorating the occasion with three coins. The Legion held its first meeting in Paris in 1919 and has since become the country's largest wartime veterans organization. Today, it promotes patriotism and honor through programs like American Legion Baseball and continues to serve active duty servicemen and veterans. This coin bears the Denver Mint's "D" Mint mark and is part of a joint mintage of 750,000 pieces, which also includes proofs.
Moving Pledge of Allegiance Design by Richard Masters
The obverse, which was designed by Richard Masters and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, shows two children pledging their allegiance to the American flag. The children have their hands on their hearts, and the girl dons her grandfather's American Legion hat. At the bottom is a quote from the pledge, which reads, "I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG..."
Richard Masters's reverse design, which was sculpted by Joseph Menna, shows the flag flying from the children's perspective. The American Legion emblem is above it, and the end of the phrase from the obverse, "TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," is inscribed below it. "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) and the coin's face value, "HALF DOLLAR," are also inscribed on this face.
