Marine Corps 230th Anniversary Silver Dollar


United States proudly honors the Marine Corps and all Marines who have sacrificed and contributed in our Nation’s service with the minting of a Silver Dollar to commemorate the 230th Anniversary of the United States Marine Corps.

On November 10, 1775, the Continental Congress authorized the raising of two battalions of American Marines, thereby creating the legendary institution today known as the United States Marine Corps. From the Nation’s birth to the present day, the Marines represent a proud culture of service and contribution in defense of the values and freedoms at the heart of the American experience.

Today, the Marines continue to exemplify the warrior ethos that has made it a fighting force of international repute. The philosophy of the Corps—and of the hundreds of thousands of individuals who have earned the title “Marine” over the last 230 years—is simply stated in its core values: Honor. Courage. Commitment. Get the first U.S. commemorative coin to honor a branch of the military.
