Now celebrate the legendary lawmen of the West with this 2015 U.S. Marshals silver dollar. Whether a fictional character like Gunsmoke’s Matt Dillon or a real-life marshal like Bat Masterson, these men pinned on their badges, rounded up posses and pursued outlaws across the American frontier. Issued to pay tribute to the agency’s 225th anniversary, this dollar honors the U.S. Marshals Service – America’s oldest federal law enforcement agency, created in 1789 by George Washington.
These coins from the Philadelphia Mint recall men like Frank Dalton, Wyatt Earp and Wild Bill Hickok, who kept order in the West. A bold star dominates the obverse, harkening back to the badges of long ago, and a posse chasing outlaws races below. Capture this “most-wanted” silver dollar before it gets away!
