Saint Florian - USMC Bronze Antique Coin
For more than two-hundred years, the warriors of the U.S. Marine Corps have fearlessly carried the torch of liberty to every part of the world, steadily defending the rights of all people to live free from tyranny.
Demonstrating exceptional skill and unfailing conviction, Marines fight to advance the cause of justice on near and distant shores, standing always prepared to protect those most in need.
Inspired by the legacy of St. Florian of Lorch, the third century Roman Soldier who was put to death for refusing to set Christian villages ablaze, Marines are recognized throughout the world for their integrity and courage.
This coin is dedicated to the warriors of the U.S. Marine Corps, whose uncompromising commitment to the defense of freedom inspires us all. The obverse depicts Saint Florian and a modern-day firefighter extinguishing a blaze. The reverse bears the seal of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Minted in a 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 legacy of St. Florian, the Patron Saint of Firefighters.
