In February 1932, the United States issued the first-ever Purple Heart to a wounded American service member. Created for US Military members wounded or killed in battle, the Purple Heart was conceived during World War I and issued more than a decade and a half after the guns fell silent. The United States Mint honors the 90th anniversary of that first issue with a commemorative bullion series. Provident Metals now has 2022-W $1 Proof American National Purple Heart Hall of Honor Silver Coins available to you for purchase online.
When you purchase a 2022-W $1 Proof American National Purple Heart Hall of Honor Silver Coin online at Provident Metals, you will receive a coin that is housed in a protective capsule. The coin and capsule are set in a presentation box and ship with a themed outer box. All of this comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. As proof coins, these specimens have frosted designs and mirrored fields.
The obverse of the 2022-W Proof American National Purple Heart Hall of Honor Silver Coin features a depiction of the Purple Heart Medal. The medal is set on the right and is accompanied by inscriptions of COMBAT WOUNDED & KILLED IN ACTION, 1932, 2022, LIBERTY, and IN GOD WE TRUST.
On the reverse side of 2022-W $1 Proof American National Purple Heart Hall of Honor Coins is an image of a nurse tending to a wounded soldier. This World War I-era nurse is caring for an American service member who has sustained wounds in battle. The inscriptions on this side of the coin read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, ONE DOLLAR, and the W mint mark of the West Point Mint.
The Badge of Military Merit was the predecessor to the Purple Heart. Developed by General George Washington, the prior badge was made from purple cloth in the shape of a heart. Today, the Purple Heart is the nations longest, continuously-issued medal of recognition for service to this country.
