US Army One Ounce Silver Proof Medallion
America's servicemen have fought for our liberty for over two centuries. This special commemorative silver medallion honors the heroes of the U.S. Army. It features the official Army insignia.
Each silver medallion is struck in one Troy ounce of .999 pure silver. It is the same size and weight as the Silver Eagle Dollar struck by the United States Mint and is even bigger and heavier than a classic Morgan Silver Dollar. It is the perfect size to display the official Army insignia.
The medallion is struck to the highest numismatic Proof quality - the same high quality coveted by coin collectors. The high-relief details stand out vividly against the mirror-bright backgrounds, creating a work of art that is worthy of any fine collection.
The obverse of the medallion depicts the emblem of the United States Army. It features a piece of Roman body armor flanked by a cannon and three cannon balls on the left, and a mortar and two mortar bomb shells on the right. The sword, musket, and bayonet represent traditional army weapons, while the freed slave's cap is a symbol of liberty. The drum with the Stars and Stripes flag on the left are from the Revolutionary era. Above the cap is a rattlesnake with a scroll in its mouth. The scroll is inscribed, "This We'll Defend." The date "1775" is the year of the Army's establishment.
The reverse of the medallion is adapted from the Great Seal of the United States. Similar images appear on many classic U.S. silver coins. The Great Seal was adopted by Congress on June 20, 1782. It shows an American bald eagle with its wings outstretched and with a Union shield on its breast. The shield represents the unity of the states in forming a single nation. The Eagle holds arrows of defense and an olive branch of peace in its talons, indicating that the United States is a peaceful nation that will defend its borders and the liberty of its people. The 13 stars above the eagle symbolize the 13 original states.
The medallion is encapsulated in a clear holder that allows it to be examined and admired without damaging its delicate Proof finish. It is delivered in a custom presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The U.S. Army One Troy Ounce Silver Medallion is the perfect gift for anyone who has served in the Army, anyone whose family or friends have served in the Army, or anyone who wishes to pay tribute to the Army and its role in protecting American liberty through the years.
