U.S. WW I Commemorative Centennial Dollar
On December 16, 2014, H.R. 2366 — the World War I American Veterans Centennial Commemorative Coin Act — became law, authorizing the issuance of a WWI commemorative coin in 2018.
Commemorative coin programs are created by acts of Congress to honor a person, place or event. Surcharges from the sales of these coins fund a variety of organizations and projects that benefit the public. These coins are only available for the United States Mint for a limited time, as specified by law.
The World War I commemorative dollar design was selected through a juried competition and the design submitted by LeRoy Transfield was chosen by the Secretary of the Treasury. The design was engraved by Don Everhart. Production is limited to 350,000 coins. The coin is supplemented by a series of five medals, each commemorating the role of one of the U.S. military service branches — Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard — during the war.
