The bold fighting spirit of America’s military men and women is captured in the classic slogan: “Don’t Tread on Me.” This enduring motto, which traces its origins to America’s Revolutionary War, still serves as an emblem of the strength of the world’s most powerful military force.
This coin honors our forefathers, who risk their lives to secure our country’s freedom. The obverse replicates the design of the original ensign displayed by American forces in the Revolutionary War. The reverse bears the likeness of the Liberty Bell, along with a quote by John F. Kennedy: “We dare not forget that we are the heirs of that first revolution.”
Minted in a brass alloy, this coin is imbued with enamel accents on both sides.
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
