The United States Marine Corps was founded as the Continental Marines in 1775, serving both onshore alongside the Continental Army and at sea defending ships of the Continental Navy during boarding operations. Today, the US Marine Corps has mastered amphibious landing and assault operations, a tactic perfected during the bloody Pacific Campaign of World War II.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Silver Marines Button Domed Round you’ll notice the insignia found on Marine Corps service uniforms. This button depicts a bald eagle with open wings as it clutches onto an anchor with its talons, while its beak holds the rope of the anchor. There is a half-circle of 13 stars above the head of the eagle.
The reverse of the United States Armed Forces silver rounds features the Great Seal of the United States. This image is often used on government documents, including military insignias, passports, and even the one dollar bill (as of 1935). It includes the eagle supporting the national shield, with 13 arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other.
Anonymous Mint is a private American refinery and coin design facility. It teamed up with Osborne Mint, the oldest operating private mint in America, to coin these beautiful United States Armed Forces silver rounds.
