2012 Infantry Commemorative Silver Dollar
Graded MS70 by ANACS
The 2012 Infantry Soldier Silver Dollarwas issued to commemorate the legacy of the United States Army Infantry and the establishment of the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center. The program included a silver dollar coin with a maximum mintage of 350,000 pieces.
The designs for the coin were announced prior to a football game between the Fort Benning Doughboys and the Columbus State University Cougars on October 27, 2011. The opening coin toss was performed with a prototype of the commemorative coin. This prototype was actually one of several test strikes created by the United States Mint using a master die and carrying a bullion finish, which is not approved for commemorative coins. The prototype and other test strikes were retained by the US Mint and eventually melted.
The obverse design for the Infantry Silver Dollar features a modern infantry soldier charging forward and beckoning others to follow, representing the “Follow Me” motto of the infantry. The inscriptions include “Liberty”, “In God We Trust”, and the date “2012”. The obverse was designed by Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso.
On the reverse is the crossed rifles insignia, which is the branch insignia of the infantry. The inscriptions include “United States of America” above, and the denomination “One Dollar” and “E Pluribus Unum” below. The reverse was designed by Ronald D. Sanders and sculpted by Norman E. Nemeth.
