Breathtaking Designs Honoring the Centennial Anniversary
The obverse design by Chris Costello and Phebe Hemphill ties together images symbolizing the establishment of the American Legion: a "V" for victory (of World War I), the Eiffel Tower to commemorate the founding city, and a portion of the Legion's logo.
