Washington, DC, April 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The United States Mint (Mint) will open sales for the U.S. Army One Ounce Silver Medal on May 7 at noon EDT.  The medal is part of the United States Armed Forces Silver Medal Program, which honors the proud history and unique traditions of each branch of the Armed Forces.

Designs featured on this medal are emblematic of the history and mission of the U.S. Army.  The obverse (heads) depicts Continental and modern soldiers “at the ready” with the weapons of their respective eras.  They represent the continuity of the U.S. Army since its beginnings and its continuing mission to defend our country.  Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES ARMY” and “SINCE 1775.”  United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) Designer Lucas Durham created the design, which United States Mint Medallic Artist Craig A. Campbell sculpted.

The reverse (tails) design juxtaposes the seven core values of the Army against the U.S. Army flag, with both the flag and its streamers lifted by a breeze.  The streamers from several major battles have visible text, including APPOMATTOX 1865, LEXINGTON 1775, ABEYANCE 2014 – 2015, TET COUNTEROFFENSIVE 1968, and LUZON 1944 – 1945.  Inscriptions are the Army’s core values— “LOYALTY,” “DUTY,” RESPECT,” “SELFLESS SERVICE,” “HONOR,” “INTEGRITY,” and “PERSONAL COURAGE.”  AIP Designer Emily Damstra created the design, which Medallic Artist Renata Gordon sculpted.

One ounce medals in the Armed Forces Silver Medal Program are 1.598 inches in diameter and are struck in 99.9 percent fine silver.  Each medal is encapsulated and packaged in a single presentation case.  The Mint’s certificate of authenticity is included.
