American GI’s fought in snow, endured frostbite and extreme heat on the Korean peninsula to halt the spread of communism – now honor their valor and sacrifice with this handsome 70th anniversary set. On July 27, 1953, the U.S. and North Korea signed an armistice, setting the boundary between the North and South at the 38th parallel and “ending” the Korean War. This 6-coin set holds the Lincoln cent, Jefferson nickel, Roosevelt dime, Washington quarter and Franklin half dollar from 1953, plus a 1991 Korean War Memorial commemorative silver dollar.
The dime, quarter, half dollar and commemorative dollar in your set are all struck in 90% silver. Captured on the obverse of the dollar are USAF F-86 fighter jets streaking across the sky as a soldier climbs a hill and naval ships float in the water. A map of Korea is shown on the reverse, with the division of North and South marked at the 38th parallel. Commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Korean War’s end, with this attractive coin set presented in a handsome display box!
