U.S. Mint unveils Legion Centennial Coin Designs. U.S. Mint Director David J. Ryder, the son of two veterans, unveiled before thousands of American Legion members the designs of three commemorative coins that go on sale March 2019 to honor the organization’s 100th anniversary. The coin required congressional action. On Oct. 6, 2017, Congress passed Public Law 115-65 allowing the Mint to strike and issue 50,000 of the gold coins, 400,000 of the silver dollars and 750,000 of the half-dollars.
The Department of Florida also offers a Florida Centennial Coin.
