Why does this $5 gold bullion coin commemorating the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor belong in your collection?
This gold coin issued by the U.S. Mint is an homage to the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor, an institution established to commemorate the commitment and sacrifices of members of the U.S. Armed Forces. The Purple Heart is bestowed upon men and women wounded or killed while serving in any branch of the U.S. military. The Purple Heart evolved from the Badge of Military Merit, America's first military decoration, which was created during the American Revolutionary War by General George Washington and awarded for the first time in 1782.
Beautifully Crafted Designs
Obverse: The obverse features a rendition of the distinctive Purple Heart medal hanging from a wide ribbon, beside the bold inscription "THE PURPLE HEART." Additional inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "2022" and "A GRATEFUL NATION HONORS AND REMEMBERS."
Reverse: The replicated signature of George Washington is centered on the reverse, with the Badge of Military Merit above, flanked by the date "1782." Inscribed "BADGE OF MILITARY MERIT," "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "FIVE DOLLARS."
