The goal of the American invasion of Iwo Jima, a volcanic island with little value other than its critical airfield within striking distance of mainland Japan, was to root out the Japanese forces on the island and capture the three airfields built up on the island during the war.
After a five-week battle for the small island, US military forces led by the United States Marine Corps eventually captured the island from the Japanese. The most iconic moment from the bloody battle, one which stands as the bloodiest of the War in the Pacific, was when a group of US Marines raised the American flag atop the island’s highest point.
Each 30 oz Antique Finish Silver Iwo Jima Statue depicts the moment when six US Marines raised an American flag on top of Mount Suribachi, the highest point on the island in a symbolic gesture of American victory. It would be several more weeks until all fighting ceased on the island.
These 30 oz Silver Iwo Jima Statues has a brilliant antique finish. The addition of antique finishes to silver statues provides the patina of age, creating warmth in the appearance and added, subtle depth to the overall design. Each statue ships inside of a protective box and includes a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
