2012 Infantry Soldier Uncirculated Silver Dollar
2012 Infantry Soldier Unc Silver Dollar
“Boots on the ground!” That’s the US Army Infantry putting its training and dedication at risk in defense of liberty in battles since George Washington took command in 1775. Infantry does most of the fighting and receives the most casualties and injuries of any branch; no surprise that 15 US presidents were Infantry soldiers. It is these heroic deeds and sacrifices that led the US Mint to create the 2012 Infantry Soldier Uncirculated Silver Dollar in accordance with the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center Commemorative Coin Act of 2008.
These uncirculated silver dollars contain 90% silver, enhancing the collectibility of these coins emblematic of the courage, pride, sacrifice, sense of duty, and history of the US Infantry. Limited to a total mintage of 350,000 (including proof versions and those collected in a set), this silver dollar will not only be sought by numismatists, but newly minted officers as well, as they engage in the long-established tradition of paying for their first salute.
The Army Infantry’s motto “Follow Me” comes to life on the obverse of the 2012 Infantry Soldier Uncirculated Silver Dollar through the image of a contemporary soldier signaling his fellow troops to join him. The reverse of this coin shows the Infantry’s historic insignia of two crossed muskets, a symbol of Infantry since 1875. The ‘W’ indicates this coin was minted at the West Point facility.
The 2012 National Infantry Uncirculated Silver Dollar is shipped in original US Mint packaging.
