Honor the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII with this exclusive challenge coin replicating the official World War II Victory Medal established by Act of Congress on July 6, 1945. It authorized the medal to be awarded to any member of the U.S. military who served on active or reserve duty from December 7, 1941 to December 31, 1946. Like the original Victory Medal, the obverse of this enameled brass challenge coin bears the figure of Liberation looking to the dawn of a new day, with her right foot resting on a war god’s helmet, the hilt of a broken sword in her right hand, and the broken blade in her left hand.
The reverse honors the sacrifices of millions of Americans during WWII with the inscription the price of freedom, while oak leaves surrounding the raising of the U.S. flag represent strength and unity. Challenge coins were originally presented by military commanders for special achievements, and that revered tradition continues with this 75th anniversary tribute to American heroism during WWII.
