2005 Marine Corps 230th Anniversary Uncirculated Silver Dollar US Mint
Marine Corps 230th Anniversary Uncirculated Silver Dollar
Just won 2007 Coin of the Year Engraved by Norman E. Nemeth and struck from brilliant 90% silver, this stunning coin features on its obverse a rendition of Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal's historic photograph, which shows the raising of an American flag by the United States Marines atop Mount Suribachi on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima. Taken on February 23, 1945, it is believed to be the most reproduced image in the history of photography. The coin's reverse features Charles L. Vickers' engraving of the Eagle, Globe and Anchor, official emblem of the United States Marine Corps. Today's emblem has remained virtually unchanged since 1868 when United States Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles approved the design as recommended by Brigadier General Commandant Jacob Zeilin.
