Honor the brave soldiers who fought for freedom during the Korean War, with this 90% silver dollar! These 1991 commemoratives were distributed to honor the 38th anniversary of the war’s end and as a tribute to the 38th parallel as the demilitarized zone. Just four years later, in 1995, a separate Korean War memorial was dedicated in Washington, D.C. That touching display features 19 stainless steel statues before a mural wall and a pool of remembrance.
Captured on the obverse of this action-packed silver dollar are USAF F-86 fighter jets, renowned for their air superiority, 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. This coin is sure to be treasured by history buffs and veterans alike.
