Saint Florian Army Bronze Antique Challenge Coin
Founded in 1775, the U.S. Army has served as the backbone of America's Fighting Forces for more than two-hundred years. Battling America's enemies with unflinching courage and unfailing resolve, the soldiers of the the U.S. Army have risked their lives on near and distant shores to strengthen America's foundation of freedom.
Emboldened by the example of warriors like St. Flroian of Lorch, the third-century Roman soldier who was tortured and killed for protecting the lives of innocent Christians from the ravages of fire, America's soldiers refuse to yield in the face of certain danger.
This coin is dedicated to the courageous men and women of the U.S. Army, whose commitment and courage keeps us safe. The obverse depicts Saint Florian, the Patron Saint of Firefighters, and a modern day firefighter engaged in their life-saving work. The reverse bears the seal of the United States Army.
Minted in MerlinGold ®, a proprietary brass alloy that simulates the look and feel of gold, this coin is finished in antique bronze. Each coin comes packaged with a header card that describes St. Florian's enduring legacy.
