Never in the course of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few. (Winston Churchill)
Long before he was President, Ronald Reagan said:
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
In a Memorial Day speech at Arlington National Cemetery on May 30, 2016, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (General Joseph Dunford, USMC) said:
Some [of those we honor today] supported the birth of the revolution; more recently, others have answered the call to confront terrorism. Along the way, more than one million Americans have given the last full measure [of devotion]. Over 100,000 in World War I. Over 400,000 in World War II. Almost 40,000 in Korea. Over 58,000 in Vietnam. And over 5,000 have been killed in action since 9/11. Today is a reminder of the real cost of freedom, the real cost of security, and that’s the human cost.
US Shipping only! We will not ship silver out of the country!
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".
