The United States Air Force is one of the five branches of the United States Armed Forces. It began as the Aeronautical Division of the U.S. Army Signal Corps in 1907 and has been an independent service since 1947. The U.S. Air Force is among the most potent military institutions globally, often carrying out precisions missions that would not be possible for the other branches. The Air Force is also responsible for surveillance and reconnaissance. 

This medal, which is set to be struck from 2.5 oz of .999 fine silver, is a fantastic choice for collectors who honor the service of those in the U.S. Armed Forces.

History of the Armed Forces Silver Medal Series

This U.S. Air Force Silver Medal is one of two issues set to begin the United States Mint’s Armed Forces Medal Series. The series sets out to honor the U.S. military branches and the men and women who serve in them. With just five branches of the military, this series will not last long. It is perfect for collectors who like the opportunity to complete a series in a relatively short period of time.

The reverse of the U.S. Air Force Silver Medal portrays a dynamic image of the Air Force Memorial, whose three distinctive spires loom large here. Members of the U.S. Air Force Honor Guard in ceremonial dress stand among the memorial. Inscriptions that appear on this face of the coin include “INTEGRITY FIRST,” “SERVICE BEFORE SELF,” and “EXCELLENCE IN ALL WE DO.”




The obverse of the medal features a lively design of a pilot flying next to F-35 fighter jets, high in the sky above a stylized landscape. The inscription, “U.S. Air Force” appears on this face.
