American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar Commemorative
Tomorrow February 25, 2010 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin sales of the 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar. This is one of two commemorative coin programs scheduled for 2010, each including the issuance of a silver dollar.
The obverse of the American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar features the legs and boots of three veterans. A banner across the top reads "They Stood Up for Us". Below the image, "In God We Trust", the date and mint mark, and "Liberty" appear.
The reverse of the coin features a wreath of oak branches with a ribbon wrapped around and a forget-me-not flower at the base. A central inscription reads "Take This Moment to Honor Our Disabled Defenders of Freedom". Additional inscriptions "United States of America", "E Pluribus Unum", and "One Dollar" appear surrounding the wreath.
The US Mint will offer proof and uncirculated versions of the coin, both struck at the West Point Mint. Introductory pricing in effect until March 29, 2010 will be $33.95 for uncirculated coins and $39.95 for proof coins. Regular pricing will be $35.95 and $43.95.
There will be an initial ordering limit of 100 units per option per household in effect for at least the first 30 days of release. The US Mint has not made any indication that a special set will be created for this commemorative coin program. Only the two individual ordering options have been mentioned with a maximum authorized mintage of 350,000 across both options.
The other commemorative program for this year will feature the 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar. This coin is currently scheduled for release on March 23, 2010.
