UNITED STATES MINT
UNITED STATES ARMY
2011 Commemorative Limited Mintage Proof Half Dollar Clad Proof Coin Uncirculated With San Francisco Mint Mark
NEW IN DARK BLUE PRESENTATION BOX WITH CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
Founded in 1775, the United States Army has served this country well for 236 years. It has played a decisive role in protecting and defending freedom throughout our history and has consistently answered the call to serve the American people at home and abroad since the Revolutionary War. More than 30 million American men and women have served in the U.S. Army since its founding.
Public Law 110-450, the “United States Army Commemorative Coin Act of 2008,” was passed by Congress and signed into law by President George W. Bush on December 1, 2008. It authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue $5 gold, $1 silver and half-dollar clad coins in recognition and celebration of the founding of the U.S. Army. As authorized, the United States Mint will produce gold, silver and clad coins in both proof and uncirculated qualities. This listing is for one of the silver proof coin only.
The act calls for the designs to be emblematic of the traditions, history and heritage of the U.S. Army and its role in American society from the Colonial period to today.
Surcharges in the amount of $35 for each gold coin, $10 for each silver coin and $5 for each clad coin sold are authorized to be paid to the Army Historical Foundation to support the construction of the National Museum of the United States Army at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
Obverse: This design represents significant contributions of the U.S. Army during peacetime and features a U.S. Army soldier surveying, two servicemen building a flood wall and a Redstone Army rocket used during early space exploration. Inscriptions are U.S. ARMY, SERVICE IN PEACE, IN GOD WE TRUST, 2011 and LIBERTY.
Reverse: This design symbolizes the U.S. Army as the first military service to defend the country and its key role in the Nation’s internal development. It features an enlisted Continental soldier armed with a musket and 13 stars representing the original Colonies. Inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, FIRST IN SERVICE TO THE NATION, E PLURIBUS UNUM and HALF DOLLAR.
