This beautiful coin celebrates the US Army’s 235th birthday with a flourish worthy of the finest fighting force the world has ever known. Two hundred and thirty-five years ago, the United States Army was established to defend our Nation. From the Revolutionary War to the current operations taking place around the world, United States soldiers remain “Army Strong,” with a deep commitment to our core values and beliefs.
This 235th birthday coin commemorates America’s Army—Soldiers, Families, and Civilians—who are achieving a level of excellence that is truly “Army Strong.” Being “Army Strong” goes beyond physical endurance and mental preparedness. It encompasses an indomitable spirit, and high ethical and moral values. These are not only desirable traits in a person, but in a Nation that wishes to live up to the ideals and vision of its Founders.
With this coin, salute “America’s Army: the Strength of the Nation.”
Minted in solid nickel alloy, using special deep-relief coining dies, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this coin celebrates qualified U.S. Army free-fall parachutists and their contributions to American freedom.
