The obverse of the silver dollar features an American soldier on the shores of Normandy on June 6, 1944, known as D-Day. The obverse inscriptions read “D-Day June 6, 1944”, “In God We Trust”, “Liberty”, and the dual date “1991” and “1995”.
The reverse features a quote from Dwight D. Eisenhower with sleeve insignia from the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force. The obverse and reverse were both designed by Thomas D. Rodgers Sr. The reverse inscriptions include “United States of America”, “E Pluribus Unum”, the denomination “One Dollar” and the quote “I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory!”
