Disabled veterans silver dollar

A silver dollar dedicated to disabled veterans will be produced by the U.S. Mint and sold next year. The silver dollar was unveiled in August at the national convention of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), a non-profit veterans service organization.

The design depicts three soldiers legs and combat boots. One soldier has only one leg and is on crutches. The inscription on the front of the coin says “They Stood Up For Us” and the word “Liberty” is prominently displayed. The back of the coin has a wreath of oak branches and forget-me-nots and says “Take This Moment to Honor Our Disabled Defenders of Freedom.”

Only 350,000 disabled veteran coins will be produced. Some proceeds from the coins will support the construction of a memorial to disabled veterans.
