Two-Piece Set Pays Tribute to American Legion’s 100th Anniversary
The American Legion started as an idea among members of the American Expeditionary Force still stationed in France after the close of World War I. This group of war-weary soldiers were concerned about the welfare of their comrades upon their return home. That first meeting was held in 1919 and today, a century later, the American Legion has grown to become the world’s largest veterans’ group with over 2 million members in more than 12,000 posts throughout the United States. To commemorate this important milestone in the organization’s history, the U.S. Mint is releasing a series of American Legion 100th Anniversary coins!
Now you can not only add one of these coins to your collection, but you can secure an exclusive commemorative medal that is available only in this special American Legion 100th Anniversary Silver Dollar Proof & Medal Two-Piece Set! When the Mint made this release available on May 20, 2019 its website was jammed with eager collectors trying to secure one of thee exclusive sets. And even with a limit of one set per household, thousands of people were turned away empty-handed.
