The design for this copper round features two different interpretations of the heraldic eagle. On the front of the round is an image that appeared on the US quarter prior to the State Quarter Program. It depicts a bald eagle with its wings stretched to their full span as it perches vigilantly atop a bundle of arrows. Beneath the set of arrows is a pair of olive branches. This image represents the government’s duty to protect the peace of this country by any means necessary. Serving as an accent to this patriotic design are a series of stars that appear directly above the eagle in a triangular formation and beneath the bird in a reverse arc shape. Also inscribed along the upper edge of the round are the words, “United States of America.”
Prominently displayed on the reverse side of the coin is a less literal interpretation of the heraldic eagle. The design consists of a winged shield, soaring over the abbreviation, “USA” and an unfurling scroll. Proudly waving above the shield is the nation’s flag, further emphasizing the stars and stripes that decorate the winged shield. As with the front of the round, the reverse side features a series of six stars, which appear along its border, accompanied by the round’s weight and purity.
