We pause to remember and honor those Americans who fought one of the greatest threats our country and world ever faced. Whether here on the home front or on far-away continents and islands, the “greatest generation” rose to the occasion in spectacular and selfless fashion to meet the challenge and preserve our freedoms and way of life.
The American Eagle One Ounce Gold Proof Coin incorporates a special privy mark on its obverse to symbolize the 75th anniversary of the triumph of World War II – “V75.” The design outline of the privy mark represents the aerial view shape of the Rainbow Pool located at West Potomac Park in Washington, DC, that is now an integral part of the World War II Memorial, prompting somber reflection, appreciation, reverence, and hope for the thousands who visit each year.
