Legion looks forward to issuance of commemorative coins

The American Legion

Sep 26, 2017

On Sept. 25, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on House Resolution (H.R.) 2519, The

American Legion 100th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Act, a bill that would require the

Department of Treasury to mint and issue gold, silver and half-dollar clad coins in celebration of

the centennial of the Legion, for one year, beginning in January 2019.

The bill has made steady progress since being introduced to Congress earlier this year. Over the

past few months, Legionnaires have been gathering support and co-sponsors for the bill in both

the House of Representatives and Senate (S. 1182). The Senate measure passed the chamber on

Aug. 3.

The Legion has worked tirelessly to ensure H.R. 2519 passes and advances to the White House

for the president’s signature, according to James Oxford, chairman of The American Legion’s

Legislative Commission.

“This is great news that the House of Representatives passed H.R. 2519 today,” he said. “Out of

all of the coin bills authorized in the last decade, The American Legion broke the record for cosponsors.

The previous record was held by the U.S. Army with 348. We currently have 375 and

that’s phenomenal.”

Unique among U.S. Mint products, all surcharges received from the sale of The American

Legion centennial coin will help raise money for Legion programs that support veterans, service

members and their families, as well as commemorate important aspects of American history and

culture. The funds gained from sales will support caring for those who served and are currently

serving in the armed forces, and programs that maintain patriotic values, strong families and

assistance for at-risk children.

"Since 1919, The American Legion has dedicated itself to serving our nation's veterans,” said

Congressman Phil Roe, R-Tenn., chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. “I

look forward to continuing to work alongside The American Legion in our shared goal of

improving the lives of America’s heroes."

Congress only authorizes the minting of two commemorative coins per year, an honor Oxford

said that the nation’s largest veterans organization is proud to share.

“The money that is generated from these commemorative coins will allow us to fund good,

quality programs for youth, national security, deployed service members and veterans,” Oxford

said.
