UNITED STATES MINT
AMERICAN VETERANS DISABLED FOR LIFE
2010 Commemorative Limited Mintage Proof Silver Dollar Coin Uncirculated With West Point Mint Mark
NEW IN VELVETINE PRESENTATION CASE WITH CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
This proof 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar is extraordinarily brilliant and features sharp relief and a mirror-like background to highlight the images on both sides of the coin.
The coin designs are emblematic of the many stories of our disabled veterans’ courage, loyalty and sacrifice.
The obverse of this coin features an image of the legs and boots of three veterans. The inscription in the banner along the upper rim, THEY STOOD UP FOR US, pays tribute to our courageous disabled veterans who have survived military service injuries for our freedom. Additional inscriptions are IN GOD WE TRUST, 2010 and LIBERTY.
The reverse design depicts a forget-me-not flower at the base of a wreath wrapped in a ribbon that cradles and supports clusters of oak branches. The oak branches represent strength, while the forget-me-not is a widely recognized icon that first served as a reminder of those who fought and became disabled in World War I. The inscriptions are Take This Moment to Honor Our Disabled Defenders of Freedom, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM and ONE DOLLAR.

The American Veterans Disabled for Life Commemorative Coin Act was passed by Congress and signed into law on July 17, 2008, as Public Law 110-277. The act authorizes the United States Mint to mint and issue commemorative silver dollar coins in proof and uncirculated versions to honor these heroes.
The images on the 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar capture the service of the brave men and women who have honored us with their selfless duty to defend our country. These veterans often carry permanent life-altering disabilities that serve as strong reminders of the price of freedom.
Surcharges from the sale of this coin by the US mint are authorized to be paid to the Disabled Veterans’ LIFE Memorial Foundation to support the construction of the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington, D.C., authorized by Congress in 2000.
