2018 Marines Commemorative and Medal Set w/ Original Government Packaging
 
This Two-Piece Silver Dollar and medal Set honors the U.S. Marine Corps and was issued in recognition of the centennial of the end of World War I which lasted from July 28, 1914 until November 11, 1918 and includes a Marine Corps Commemorative Silver Medal.
 
The World War I Centennial Commemorative series was authorized by Congress in 2014, serving to mark the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War I, and honors the 4.7 million men and women who served. The design of this coin was selected from a 2016 public competition directed by the U.S. Mint. The coin obverse has been titled Soldier's Charge and the reverse aptly titled Poppies in the Wire. As reported by the Army Times, World War I veterans have no national memorial in Washington, D.C. and thus the purchase of this coin is to help construct a flagpole and a 65-foot-long commemorative wall in their honor.
