She certainly is a “Grand Old Flag” — and she belongs in your collection! Struck in copper-nickel, plated in silver, and then given a fully colorized reverse, this coin takes the shape of a Star-Spangled Banner as it gently blows in the wind. But unlike some other American Flag coins, which display a waving flag but remain flat, this three-dimension piece has actual waves in it to recreate that most patriotic of imagery.
This Uncirculated coin measures 46.35 mm x 39.5 mm x 6 mm giving it a size that shows every crease and ripple in the flag. What’s more, it’s also 500 Francs CFA legal tender in the Republic of Cameroon, a central African country located at the junction of western and central Africa. Just 5,000 were ever struck, so act now to add some patriotism to your collection!
