(1991) Korean War Memorial

The 38th anniversary of the end of the Korean War was the occasion for striking this coin, which honors the end of the conflict and those who served in combat. The design has been criticized as being cluttered, and the occasion no more than a fund-raising opportunity for the creation of a national monument in Washington. The obverse, designed by sculptor-engraver of the U.S. Mint John Mercanti, features an Army infantryman in full gear. On the reverse is an outline map of Korea with North and South divided at the 38th parallel, designed by Mint sculptor-engraver James Ferrell.
