Why buy this $5 Gold 2019-W American Legion 100th Anniversary Commemorative Proof?

World War I was one of the bloodiest conflicts that the world has ever seen. However, in its wake, one of America's finest organizations, the American Legion, was created. The Legion first met in Paris on March 15-17, 1919 and today promotes patriotism and honor through its various programs, which serve youth, active military members, and veterans. The U.S Mint is joining in the celebration of the organization's 100th anniversary with three coins, including this $5 Gold Commemorative. The coin was struck on an 8.359 g planchet of .900 fine gold. Part of a combined mintage of 50,000 pieces, which also includes business strikes, this piece bears the "W" mint mark of the West Point Mint on the obverse.

Patriotic Eagle Design by Paul C. Balan

Chris Costello's obverse design, which was sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, features a "V", a symbol of victory, superimposed on the Eiffel Tower. The Paris landmark represents the city in which the new organization held its first meeting. Flanking these design elements are the anniversary years, "1919" and "2019." Other inscriptions on this face read, "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "LIBERTY."

Designed by Paul C. Balan and sculpted by Joseph Menna, the reverses consists of the American Legion logo on the left and an eagle in flight on the right. The coin's face value, "$5," is inscribed above the eagle's head, while "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) are also included on this face.
