The purpose behind the design of this coin is to show respect and honor to our Pledge of Allegiance, and the sacrifices made by many to bring it to us, including the sacrifices of our forefathers in establishing this great nation, and the sacrifices of our military and our police to keep it for us!
The U.S. Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag was written in 1892 by then 37-year-old minister Francis Bellamy. The original version of Bellamy’s pledge read, “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic, for which it stands,—one nation, indivisible—with liberty and justice for all.”
By the early 1920s, the first National Flag Conference (source of the U.S. Flag Code), the American Legion, and the Daughters of the American Revolution all recommended changes to the Pledge of Allegiance. These changes were intended to clarify its meaning when recited by immigrants as to which nation they were pledging allegiance to, changing "my Flag" to "the Flag", and the words “of the United States of America" were added.
In 1954, the Pledge of Allegiance underwent its most controversial change to date. With the threat of Communism looming, President Dwight Eisenhower pressed Congress to add the words “under God” to the pledge. In advocating for the change, Eisenhower declared it would “reaffirm the transcendence of religious faith in America’s heritage and future” and “strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country’s most powerful resource in peace and war.”
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Why Stack Silver?
Challenge Coins have traditionally been minted in a zinc alloy, but why buy zinc when you can stack silver with your Challenge Coins?
In the words of SD Bullion, "Some stack silver because it is a proven store of wealth while other silver stackers use it as a system to save capital for the long haul. Some stackers like the notoriety of buying silver bullion in larger quantities. Most would argue they stack silver as a hedge against economic downturns or emergencies."
If you want this challenge coin at a cheaper price point, it is ALSO available in pure copper at a much lower price than silver!
* .999 silver is referred to as "three nines fine". It is 99.9% pure, and is the most common maximum purity level bullion sold at the major silver foundries. In contrast, silver coins are typically between 80% and 90% pure, and the silver used in jewelry is often 92.5% pure and is referred to as "925 silver".
