2012 US Mint Infantry Soldier Silver Dollar Defenders of Freedom Set

From the beginning, the Infantry has borne the brunt of sacrifice for securing and protecting the freedoms of our Nation, our friends and allies. It is the "boots on the ground," armed with both rifle and bayonet, and owns the last 100 yards of the battlefield.

The 2012 Infantry Soldier Silver Dollar Defenders of Freedom Set is a limited-edition collectible set with a production limit of 50,000. It includes a proof silver dollar, a replica dog tag on a miniature chain and a famous quote from President John F. Kennedy and showcases the Army motto, all in a custom folder.

Public Law 110-357, signed into law by the President of the United States on October 8, 2008, requires the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue silver dollar coins in commemoration of the legacy of the U.S. Army Infantry and establishment of the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center.

Coin Designs:

The 2012 Infantry Soldier Silver Dollar coin designs are emblematic of the courage, pride, sacrifice, sense of duty and history of the Infantry.

The obverse (heads side) design features a modern Infantry soldier on rocky ground charging forward and beckoning to the troops to follow, symbolizing the "Follow Me" motto of the Infantry. Inscriptions are LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and 2012. The representation of the contemporary soldier captures the essence of the Infantry’s motto.

The reverse (tails) design features the crossed rifles insignia, the branch insignia of the Infantry. Inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ONE DOLLAR and E PLURIBUS UNUM. The insignia is a universally recognizable symbol of the Infantry, as all members wear it.

Mintage Limits:
The 2012 Infantry Soldier Silver Dollar Defenders of Freedom Set has a production limit of 50,000 units, which is included in the program mintage limit of 350,000 silver dollars.
