World War I Centennial Silver Dollar
More than four million American families sent their sons and daughters to serve in uniform during the Great War. 116,516 U.S. soldiers gave their lives in combat. Another 200,000 were wounded, a casualty rate far greater than in World War II.
In total, approximately 4 million men and women of the United States served in uniform, 2 million of whom were deployed overseas. Their heroic efforts in battles like the Battle of Belleau Wood, the Second Battle of the Marne, and the Meuse-Argonne Offensive helped turn the tide of the war, and ultimately led to the victory of the Allied Troops.
