American Veterans Silver Medal
- Year of Issue: 2019
The American Veterans Silver Medal is being issued in conjunction with the American Legion 100th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Program.
CharacteristicsThe obverse (heads) design portrays a bald eagle spreading its wings as it prepares for flight, suggesting the initiative, determination, and personal courage required by those who choose to serve in our nation’s Armed Forces. The five stars represent the five branches of the U.S. Armed Services.
The reverse (tails) design depicts a field of stars symbolizing all American veterans – past, present, and future. A lone incused star below the field represents the veteran who has made the ultimate sacrifice in defending our country. The absence of this star in the field conveys the supreme sense of loss to the nation.
