Why buy this 4 Coin 2011 Medal of Honor Commemorative Gold & Silver Set from the collection of Vietnam War Hero A.B. Allen?
This four coin Medal of Honor Commemorative Set comes to us from the collection of A.B. Allen. Mr. Allen is a long time customer of MCM, and these coins could not come from a more fitting source. Mr. Allen is a Vietnam War hero, and he takes pride in his service and his collection. This set consists of the four coins, one proof and one business strike each, of the gold and silver 2011 issues that marked the 150th anniversary of the original Medal of Honor. The gold coins were struck from 8.359 g and the silver ones were struck from .7734 troy oz. All are .900 fine.
Stunning Minerva Design by Joel Iskowitz
Joel Iskowitz's reverse design for the gold coins replicates the original Medals of Honor for both the Army and Navy. Minerva holds a shield that symbolizes the Army and Navy in her right hand, and a union flag in her left. To either side of her are a wheel and field artillery canon from the time period of the Civil War. The obverses of the gold coins bear the original Navy Medal of Honor from 1861.
The silver coins bear a powerful design by Richard Masters on the reverse. A soldier is carrying one of his wounded brothers to safety under enemy fire, capturing the selflessness that is associated with the award. On the obverses are each of the three modern medals of honor.
Flawless MS70 and PF70
All four coins in this set received perfect grades of either Mint State 70 (MS70) or Proof 70 (PF70) from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). These grades are given only to coins that are perfect as seen under 5x magnification. All four also received the Early Releases (ER) designation indicating that the coins were received at grading within 30 days of their initial release.
