Why buy this 100th Anniversary Commemorative 2019-P American Legion Silver Dollar Proof?
Chartered by Congress in 1919, the American Legion was founded in Paris by members of an American Expeditionary Force. Since then, the organization has blossomed into the nation's largest veterans organization. Today, it promotes patriotism, cares for active service members and veterans, as well as promotes honor and patriotism through such programs as American Legion Baseball. In 2019, the Legion celebrates its 100th birthday, and the U.S Mint is sharing in the occasion with three commemorative coins. One is this Silver Dollar, which was struck from 26.73 g of .999 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint. It is part of a mintage of 400,000 pieces.
Patriotic American Legion Design by Paul C. Balan
The obverse, which Renata Gordon sculpted and Paul Balan designed, features the emblem of the American legion along with oak leaves and a lily. Together, they represent the foundation of the Legion in Paris. These designs are joined by the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2019."
The reverse also pays tribute to the foundation of the organization with the inclusion of the fleur de lis, which features just above the inscription "100 YEARS OF SERVICE." Under the inscription are the crossed flags of the United States and the American Legion. The design was created by Patricia Lucas-Morris and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso.
