Description

The images on the 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar capture the service of the brave men and women who have honored us with their selfless duty to defend our country.  These veterans often carry permanent life-altering disabilities that serve as strong reminders of the price of freedom.

The coin designs are emblematic of the many stories of our disabled veterans' courage, loyalty and sacrifice.  The obverse features an image of the legs and boots of three veterans.  The inscription in the banner along the upper rim, THEY STOOD UP FOR US, pays tribute to our courageous disabled veterans who have survived military service injuries for our freedom.  Additional inscriptions are IN GOD WE TRUST, 2010 and LIBERTY.

The reverse design depicts a forget-me-not flower at the base of a wreath wrapped in a ribbon that cradles and supports clusters of oak branches.  The oak branches represent strength, while the forget-me-not is a widely recognized icon that first served as a reminder of those who fought and became disabled in World War I.  The significance of the small blue flowers is attributable to an image conveyed by World War I soldiers who had seen them growing on the graves of comrades and allies who had been killed.  After the war, the flower became the accepted symbol for commemorating those who had fallen.  The inscriptions are Take This Moment to Honor Our Disabled Defenders of Freedom, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM and ONE DOLLAR.
