Why buy this Clad Proof 2019-S American Legion 100th Anniversary Commemorative Half Dollar?

The American Legion was founded within months of the end of the First World War. It held its first ever meeting in Paris on March 15-17, 1919 with members of the American Expeditionary Force holding a caucus. The organization has since become America's largest wartime veterans organization. Through a variety of programs, the Legion service active duty service members, veterans, and youth. The US Mint is honoring the organization on its centennial anniversary with three commemorative, including this Clad Half Dollar Proof. This piece bears the "S" Mint mark of the San Francisco Mint. It is part of a joint mintage of 750,000 pieces, which also includes business strikes.

Poignant Pledge of Allegiance Design by Richard Masters

Richard Masters designed and Phebe Hemphill sculpted the obverse, where two young children are pledging their allegiance to the American flag. One of them, the girl, has her grandfather's American Legion hat on her head. At the bottom are the opening words of the Pledge of Allegiance, "I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG..."

Richard Masters's reverse, which was sculpted by Joseph Menna, bears thee completion of the phrase that began on the obverse with the words, "OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." Above those words is the American flag flying on the flagpole as seen from the children's perspective. The American Legion emblem is above the flag. Additional inscriptions on this face read, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) and "HALF DOLLAR."

Virtually Perfect PF69 UC FR

This coin is perfect as seen by the naked eye according to its Proof 69 grade, which it received from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). It also bears particularly sharp contrasts between deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices based on its Ultra Cameo certification. Further, its First Releases designation means that it was submitted to NGC no more than a month after its initial mint release.
