United States Mint Unveils Designs for New Commemorative Coin Honoring American Disabled Veterans
United States Mint Director Ed Moy will unveil designs for the 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar on August 22, 2009, at the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) 2009 National Convention in Denver. The ceremony will begin at 8:30 a.m. Mountain Time (MT) at the Sheraton Hotel Denver. The Honorable Erik K. Shinseki, Secretary of Veterans Affairs, will attend the unveiling.
The 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar honors veterans who became disabled for life while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Authorized by Public Law 100-277-the American Veterans Disabled for Life Commemorative Coin Act-the United States Mint will strike and issue silver $1 coins in proof and uncirculated versions. The coins will bear the "W" mint mark of the United States Mint at West Point. Surcharges collected from coin sales are to be paid to the Disabled Veterans' LIFE Memorial Foundation (DVLMF). The foundation will use the surcharges to support construction of the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington, D.C., which was authorized by Congress in 2000.
