Believing that an armed citizenry was vital to the defense of America's fledgling democracy, the Founding Fathers set out to protect every citizen's right to keep and bear arms.
In the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, these bold and visionary leaders plainly expressed the importance of this right for the promotion of national security and the defense of individual liberty.
For more than a century, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has carried on their legacy, sponsoring the efforts of modern-day patriots to vigorously defend the freedoms guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
As a proud partner of the NRA, Northwest Territorial Mint is honored to present this distinctive proof-quality coin. The obverse features the NRA monogram inscribed in stylized text. The reverse features the text of the Second Amendment and includes a quote from Thomas Jefferson that reads: 'No Free man shall be debarred the use of arms.'
Minted in MerlinGold,® a proprietary brass alloy that simulates the look and feel of gold, this coin contains an antique bronze finish. Each coin comes packaged with a header card that describes the NRA's continued commitment to protecting the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.
