Love Your Veterans | Show Your Support
Love Your Veterans and Provident Metals have partnered to support and raise awareness for veterans of the armed forces through the Love Your Veterans charity.
Proceeds from the Guardian Angel and No Hero Left Behind silver and copper coins and Melanie Davis’ book, “The Triumph Book: HEROES,” will directly benefit the national campaign.
Melanie, founder of Love Your Veterans, wrote “HEROES” to tell first-person stories from veterans and increase patriotism and appreciation for military personnel. The book, a compilation of 27 stories, also provided an effective platform for assisting our military as they gain wisdom from their peers. The book is an Amazon Bestseller and is an inspiration to not only military, but civilians as well.
While collecting stories for her book, Melanie came across stories of wounded soldiers being assisted by deceased soldiers. On one occasion, an injured soldier was tended to by a female medic while another soldier stood guard. When he returned to base and gave the names of the soldiers who helped him, he was told they both had died a month prior.
While the soldiers that experienced these events chose not to share the details in the book, the stories inspired Melanie to have an image created of such a scenario. Wes Scales, veteran and graphic designer, captured the stories visually with an image of Guardian Angels surrounding an injured soldier. The picture is not only the back cover of “HEROES,” but also bears the reverse of the Guardian Angels silver and copper coins at Provident Metals. The coin show two soldiers with wings aiming down their sights on a battlefield.
The No Hero Left Behind coins were also produced as part of the partnership, and features a Marine resting on a rock with rays of sun shining down on him. Marine Combat Photojournalist Cpl. Tyler W. Hill captured the image in Iraq on the one-year anniversary of the death of the pictured Marines comrade.
The silver coins contain 1 oz of .999 fine silver and each copper coin is composed of 1 AVDP oz of .999 copper.
The obverse of all four coins was designed by Army Veteran, Joshua George, and shows a heart bearing stars and stripes, which represents the love and patriotism we should have for our country and those who defend it. It also serves as a reminder of our gratitude to veterans.
