2013-P $1 Silver Five-Star Generals Commemorative Proof
A Silver Commemorative Coin That Earns a 5-Star Rating
The U.S. Army’s Command and General Staff College (CGSC) was established in 1881 to train officers in the science and profession of military tactics. Originally established at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas by General William Tecumseh Sherman to train infantry and cavalry officers, the CGSC has grown to encompass four schools of military discipline and produced such distinguished alumni as Omar Bradley, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Douglas MacArthur, George Marshall, George S. Patton Jr., Colin Powell, and H. Norman Schwarzkopf.
The CGSC has had a profound effect on many battles and conflicts throughout the world and been a key to America’s success from World War I and World War II all the way up through today’s global campaigns. To honor the 5-star generals who attended or taught at the CGSC, the U.S. Mint released this commemorative silver dollar in 2013 on the 132nd Anniversary of the institution’s founding.
Struck in 90% silver, the legal-tender coin is steeped in military tradition. Richard Masters’ obverse design shows the portraits of Generals George C. Marshall and Dwight D. Eisenhower against a striped flag-background and the five-star insignia. Along with Douglas MacArthur, Henry “Hap” Arnold and Omar Bradley, they are the only 5-star generals who attended or taught at CGSC. The coin’s reverse was designed by Joseph Menna and it shows an image of the Leavenworth Lamp, symbolic of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.
