Few geopolitical events helped define the American Identity in the 20th Century to the same degree as World War II. This monumental struggle against Fascism touched nearly every person in the United States by either directly serving in the Armed Forces or having a loved one who did so.
The conflict helped shape the world view of several subsequent American generations to see themselves as “honest brokers” in geopolitical negotiation, the good guys in the ongoing struggle against tyranny and totalitarianism, and a powerful military ally.
Therefore, it is only fitting that the United States Mint is issuing a commemorative 24 karat gold coin and matching silver medal to mark the 75th Anniversary of the Allied Victory in World War II.
An original design is featured on the End of World War II 75th Anniversary 24-Karat Gold Coin and the Silver Medal.
Obverse: The obverse shows us the proud and powerful American Bald Eagle flying while holding the olive branch of peace. In 1945 the Great Seal of the United States changed the direction in which the eagle gazes. Before 1945, the eagle on the Great Seal looked at the arrows shown in that great emblem. After this monumental conflict, the eagle was redrafted to look at the olive branch. The eagle featured in this design also looks toward peace. The gold coin bears a face value of $25 and is struck on a ½ oz 24 karat gold planchet.
Artist Ronald Sanders of the Mint’s Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) created the obverse design, sculpted by the U.S. Mint’s Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill
Reverse: The reverse design uses an image similar to the sun that appears on the U.S. 1945 World War II Victory Medal. The sun shines on olive branches that appear on the top left of the design. The medal was issued to U.S. Armed Forces men and women who served their country between the Pearl Harbor Attack on December 7, 1941, through December 31, 1946.
Artist Donna Weaver of the Mint’s Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) designed the reverse, sculpted by the U.S. Mint’s Sculptor-Engraver Renata Gordon.
In addition to striking the gold coin and silver medal to mark the End of WWII, the Mint is striking special American Gold Eagles and American Silver Eagles, each featuring low mintage and the special V75 Privy mark.
In addition to those special Eagles, the 2020 “W” mint mark America the Beautiful Quarters will also feature the V75 privy mark.
