Why order this American Legion 2019-D 100th Anniversary Commemorative Clad Half Dollar?

Just a few months following the end of World War I, the American Legion met for the first time ever in Paris, France. In the century since, it has grown into America's largest wartime veterans service organization. It runs a wide variety of programs, including American Legion Baseball, as well as those geared toward active duty service members and veterans. This Clad Half Dollar is among three US Mint commemoratives issued to mark the organization's centennial anniversary. Part of a joint mintage of 750,000 pieces, in which proofs are also included, this coin bears the "D" mint mark of the Denver Mint.

Poignant Pledge of Allegiance Design by Richard Masters

Two children stand pledging their allegiance to the American flag on Richard Masters's obverse. The smaller of the two, a girl, dons her grandfather's American Legion hat. Phebe Hemphill sculpted this face, which also includes the opening words of the Pledge of Allegiance, "I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG..."

The end of that phrase, "OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," is inscribed under the American flag on Richard Masters's reverse. Above the flag, which waves from the top of a flagpole, is the emblem of the American Legion. "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) is also included at the top, while "HALF DOLLAR" is at the bottom.

Impeccable MS70 FR

This coin is in perfect condition as seen under 5x magnification according to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), who awarded it the company's highest grade, Mint State 70. The coin also earned First Releases certification due to the fact that it was submitted for grading within 30 days of its initial mint release.
