MEDAL OF HONOR COMMEMORATIVE COIN IMAGES RELEASED

The upcoming Medal of Honor commemoratives are interesting in that there are coins which picture medals, an unusually juxtaposition of numismatic items. I like the designs and I'm curious to see the coins in person. -Editor

Medal of Honor gold coin

Medal of Honor silver coin

Images of the upcoming Medal of Honor Commemorative Coins were recently posted on the US Mint's website. Until now, only the line-art images had been available.

The program was authorized by Congress to recognize and celebrate the establishment of the Medal of Honor, to honor its recipients, and to promote awareness of what the Medal represents and how ordinary Americans can challenge fate and change the course of history. The program includes a $5 gold coin with a maximum authorized mintage of 100,000, and a silver dollar with maximum mintage of 500,000.

The coins are scheduled to go on sale February 25, 2011.
