Why add this $5 Gold Coin commemorating the American Legion's 100th Anniversary to your collection?

The U.S. Mint commemorates the one hundred year milestone of the American Legion with the release of this 2019-W gold coin. Founded in Paris in 1919, the Legion is currently the nation's largest veteran's organization, with nearly two million members. Mintage of the sensational 21.59 mm diameter coin struck from 0.242 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold at the West Point Mint is limited to 50,000 along with its Proof companion.

Spectacular Symbolic Designs

Designed by Chris Costello and Phebe Hemphill, a "V" for victory and the Eiffel Tower are centered on the obverse, bordered by a frame borrowed from the American Legion's emblem. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "1919," "2019," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "W."

A magnificent eagle is depicted on the reverse beside the logo for the American Legion. The design by Paul C. Balan and Joseph Menna is accompanied by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "$5" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."

Gorgeous Mint State 69 with First Releases Label

This 2019-W American Legion 100th Anniversary Gold commemorative coin has been awarded the grade of Mint State 69 from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The superbly struck, virtually flawless coin was submitted to the grading service for review within the first thirty days of release and is sealed in a NGC protective holder accompanied by a certification label with the First Releases designation.

This 2019-W $5 gold commemorative coin issued in tribute to the American Legion's 100th Anniversary will make an impressive addition to your collection!
