For more than two centuries, the fearless and ferocious fighters of the U.S. Marine Corps have engaged all those who have attempted to destroy the American way of life.
Consistently challenging the world’s foremost forces of evil, these mighty warriors have demonstrated an unwillingness to yield a single yard on the battlefield, pursuing victory with unmatched intensity and awe-inspiring skill.
Faithfully answering the call to avenge the attacks of September 11, 2001, the Marines spearheaded America’s all out assault on global terrorism, hunting down those responsible for the despicable acts of evil that claimed the lives of 3,000 innocent Americans.
This coin is dedicated to the elite warriors of the U.S. Marine Corps, who continue to fight in the name of freedom. The obverse contains the unforgettable image of three New York City Firefighters raising the American Flag over the ruined landscape of ground zero. The reverse bears the seal of the U.S. Marine Corps.
