Why purchase this 2021 U.S. Air Force Commemorative 2.50 oz. Silver Medal?
The U.S. Mint has launched a medal series to honor the six branches of the United States Armed Forces. The first medal to be released is an homage to the United States Air Force. The Air Force was initially formed in 1907 a part of the U.S. Army. The re-structuring of the military as mandated by the National Security Act of 1947 established the Air Force as an independent military branch.
Design Celebrating the Legacy of the U.S. Air Force
Obverse: The obverse depicts a pilot in the cockpit of a fighter jet, in the air amongst the clouds with two companion F-22 fighter jets, above a stylized rural landscape. Inscribed "U.S. AIR FORCE."
Reverse: The U.S. Air Force Honor Guard proudly stands in a ceremonial assembly at the base of the Air Force Memorial located near Washington D.C. on the reverse. The memorial consists of three magnificent spires, positioned to mimic the Air Force Thunderbirds' contrails when performing the missing man formation during the fly-over at an Air Force funeral. The Air Force's core values, "SERVICE BEFORE SELF," "INTEGRITY FIRST" and "EXCELLENCE IN ALL WE DO," are inscribed above.
