Purple Heart Coin
This high relief, splash-minted coin exhibits the precision detail characteristic of such minting technique. Die struck out of thicker blanks, this coin will have a substantive feel to it as well. The coin is given an antique finish then enameled and baked for a beautiful and durable result. The reverse has space available for engraving. The coin comes packaged in a polybag with a header card.
The Purple Heart is awarded in the name of the President to any member of an Armed Force who, while serving with the U.S. Armed Services has been wounded or killed.
Official rolls are not kept; no one knows how many have been earned. This coin honors the sacrifice ﾗ sometimes the ultimate sacrifice ﾗ paid by the men and women who are entitled to wear it.
