United States Army - Cavalry

Though they have stabled their horses for IAV Stryker armored fighting vehicles, the United States Army Cavalry has proved its worth time and again, from the American Revolution to modern conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Created in 1776 when General George Washington saw the decimating effects of British mounted forces on the Continental Army, Army Cavalry combines the agility of infantry with the power of larger mobile units. The cavalry has always come through to take the fight to the enemy and win the day.

While the traditional cavalry distinctions ceased to exist when the branch was absorbed into the Army’s armor branch in 1951, the branch’s traditions continue on with the armored and air cavalry regiments. The only presently existing division of the Army that retains the "cavalry" name, the 1st Cavalry Division retains one detachment of ceremonial horse cavalry for morale and ceremonial purposes. The division is further divided into armored and air cavalry brigades, which contain subordinate units performing more traditional cavalry tasks.

This stone-polished coin has a cloisonné enamel and shined bronze finish, and is dedicated to the brave men and women of the United States Army Cavalry. The obverse features the insignia of the U.S. Army Cavalry, two crossed sabers in scabbards. The reverse displays the logo of the United States Army, with its iconic “Army Strong” tagline.
