Sale of 2011 Army coins to end

E-mail Print PDF

The Army Historical Foundation (AHF) is reminding soldiers, Army veterans and their families that the U. S. Mint will terminate the production and sale of the 2011 Army Commemorative Coins on Dec. 16.

"These commemoratives are the only U.S. coins ever authorized by Congress to honor American soldiers, present and past. They have extraordinary symbolic value and won’t ever be available again, so we don’t want folks who’ve put off ordering them, or may not have even heard about them, to miss out and be disappointed once mintage and sales cease," says retired Brig. Gen. Creighton W. Abrams Jr., executive director of AHF.

The $5 gold coin, silver dollar and clad half dollar can be ordered from the U.S. Mint’s website (www.usmint.gov/catalog) or by calling 800-USA-MINT (872-6468). The pricing of the coins includes a surcharge – $35 for each gold coin, $10 for each silver coin and $5 for each clad coin – which is authorized to be paid to HF help build the National Museum of the United States Army at Fort Belvoir, Va.

Resolution No. 17, passed by the Legion’s National Executive Committee in 2005, states the Legion’s support for the building of the museum. Click here for more information on the Fort Belvoir site, scheduled for a 2012 groundbreaking.
