In American history, there are few battles with more significance than the battle of Iwo Jima. This historically relevant battle saw the United States Marine Corps and naval fleet forces battling the army and naval forces of the Empire of Japan. The Battle of Iwo Jima was one of the most important during the US island-hopping campaign in the Pacific theater during World War II. The 1 Kilo Silver Antique Finish Iwo Jima Statue pays tribute to one of the most poignant moments of the entire battle. The statue contains 1 kilogram of silver, or 32.15 oz. It is highly collectible amongst those who collect World War II pieces, and amongst collectors of fine silver products.
The battle of Iwo Jima was a pivotal moment in the American island-hopping campaign during the Second World War. The United States and its allies situated in the Pacific worked out a battle plan that included taking one island after another from the Japanese in an effort to push them back to mainland Japan and ultimately defeat the Japanese empire.
Once Iwo Jima was taken, the United States Army Air Forces found itself with a launching pad for the newly-built B29 bombers. This offered the ability to launch bombing raids on mainland Japan to send the empire falling to its knees.
The 1 Kilo Silver Antique Finish Iwo Jima Statue depicts the poignant moment when a collection of United States Marines ascended to the summit of Mount Suribachi in order to raise the American flag. This was done as a symbol of the United States defeating the Japanese on the island.
The imagery depicted on the 1 Kilo Silver Antique Finish Iwo Jima Statue is inspired by Joe Rosenthals Associated Press photograph of a group of six US Marines raising the American flag on the summit of the highest point on the island. Despite the flag being raised, the battle to secure the island and defeat each of the Japanese resistance fighters continued for some time.
