The "Uncommon Valor" Eisenhower Dollar
Honoring the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima
"Among the Americans who served on Iwo Island, uncommon valor was a common virtue."
- Admiral Chester W. Nimitz
It’s the 75th anniversary of the most famous moment of World War II. In mid-February of 1945, 70,000 Marines landed on the Pacific island of Iwo, pitted against a force of 25,000 entrenched Japanese. On the fifth day of the landing, despite heavy resistance, six Marines reached the peak of Mount Suribachi and planted the American flag. A photograph of that great moment swept the nation and inspired both our military and Americans back home.
Now, 75 years later, you have the opportunity to acquire an historic commemorative of this iconic flag raising and the men who died in pursuit of it. A state-of-the-art full color image of that sterling moment is emblazoned on a genuine U.S. Government Eisenhower Dollar – giving you the iconic image of the war in the Pacific - and the portrait of Eisenhower, the five-star general and supreme commander of allied operations in Europe.
Each “Uncommon Valor” Eisenhower Dollar comes in a collector’s pouch to preserve and protect it, along with a monograph telling the story of the battle. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
