Medal of Honor Commemorative Coins - Now Available

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of establishment of the Medal of Honor by an Act of Congress signed into law by Abraham Lincoln in December 1861, Congress last year passed an Act directing the U.S. Mint to strike two commemorative coins - a $1 silver coin and a $5 gold coin that will be available in 2011 only. These coins are legal tender and not in circulation and feature images symbolizing the values embodied in the Medal of Honor - a reminder of having the courage to do the right thing and to think of others before oneself.
