Battling a shadowy enemy on unforgiving terrain, the soldiers who served their country during the Vietnam War fought courageously to uphold America’s promise to defend the cause of freedom throughout the world.
Honoring their mission to protect the citizens of South Vietnam from the brutal aggression of the North Vietnamese communist forces, they refused to surrender a single battle throughout the entire span of America’s longest war. From the launch of combat operations in 1965 to the withdrawal of U.S. Forces in 1973, America’s brave fighting men and women sacrificed their lives to sustain the hopes of a people striving desperately to form a more democratic society in the face of ruthless tyranny.
This coin is dedicated to all the heroic men who served in the Vietnam War. The obverse features a rendering of the Vietnam Veterans Statue located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The reverse bears the seal of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Minted in a brass alloy, this coin contains an antique bronze finish and comes packaged with a detailed header card that provides insight into the sacrifices made by America’s Vietnam Veterans.
