The U.S. Mint is planning a series of medals honoring each of the six branches of the United States Armed Forces. The medals are intended to be struck on .999 fine silver 2.5 oz. planchets. The series is likely to be popular with collectors of military-related issues, patriotic issues, and precious metals enthusiasts.

The first medal in the series is for the United States Air Force and is due to be released in February 2021. The series is set to be concluded in 2022.

The Air Force has humble beginnings back in 1907 when it was part of a specialty division of the U.S. Army. In 1947, after World War II, the Air Force became its own branch of the U.S. Military. Since its inception, the Air Force has become an irreplaceable contributor to America’s military dominance. It has contributed to non-military endeavors as well, including the training of some of the earliest astronauts and technological contributions to civilian flight safety around the world.

The bravery of the men and women who serve in the Air Force, and the technology and weaponry developed and deployed by the Air Force, have helped defend freedom and democracy worldwide for over 70 years.

Design Yet to Be Revealed

The design for the medal has not yet been announced. The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) and the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) recommended the same obverse design, but the final design that will appear on the coins has not yet been revealed. The recommended obverse design depicts a pilot in the foreground and two planes behind.

This page will be updated with more information about the medal and its design when its becomes available.
