The 1994 Vietnam Veterans Memorial Silver Dollar was issued under one of three similarly themed commemorative coin programs. The other two programs featured Women in Military Service Memorial and Prisoners of War Memorial. This coin was issued to mark the 10th anniversary of the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, DC.
The obverse design features a hand touching the Memorial Wall. The Washington Monument can be seen in the background of the scene, which was designed by John Mercanti. The obverse coin inscriptions include “Liberty”, the date “1994”, “In God We Trust”, and the caption “Vietnam Veterans Memorial”.
The reverse design features three military ribbons, as designed by Thomas D. Rogers Sr. The reverse coin inscriptions include “United States of America”, “E Pluribus Unum”, and the denomination “One Dollar”.
The 1994 Vietnam Veterans Memorial Silver Proof Dollar was minted at the Philadelphia Mint.
The coin is housed in a plastic capsule. This coin is proof quality, which means it meets the finest standards in the industry for both beauty and craftsmanship, carefully designed to represent the best possible versions of the original model.
