2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar

The US Mint began sales of the first commemorative coin program of the year on February 25, 2010. The coins are issued to honor the service of disabled veterans who survived the ordeals of war and made enormous personal sacrifices to defend the principles of democracy.

Disabled Veterans Silver Dollar

The 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollars are issued in proof and uncirculaed versions, both produced at the West Point Mint. There is a maximum authorized mintage of 350,000 coins across both options.

The obverse of the coin features the legs and boots of verans, with one visibly on crutches. An inscription on a ribbon above reads “They Stood Up for Us”. The reverse of the coin features a wreath oak branches with a forget me not flower at the base. A central inscriptions reads “Take This Moment to Honor Our Disabled Defenders of Freedom”.

While I will purchase a pair of these coins for my collection, I would have liked to see a different obverse design. A similar legs and shoes theme was recently used on the Little Rock Silver Dollar just three years ago.
