The design on the obverse of the coin symbolizes the Coast Guard. The design is modelled after a Coast Guard uniform button. In the center of the round is an upright anchor with an open-winged eagle perched at the top. A rope winds its way down the anchor. From the bottom center of the round, leaved branches curve upwards. The outer perimeter is encircled in roping. The United States Coast Guard is one of the five branches of the United States Armed Forces. The Coast Guard is unique in that it has a mission of maritime law enforcement with jurisdiction in both domestic and international waters. The Coast Guard’s functions are in maritime homeland security, maritime law enforcement, search and rescue, maritime environmental protection and the maintenance of aids to navigation on the Intracoastal Waterway, rivers and offshore.
THE FIRST COIN OF THE CONVEX SERIES SYMBOLIZES THE MARINES. Modelled after a Marines uniform military button, the design depicts a bald eagle with open wings grasping an anchor in its talons while holding the anchor’s rope in its beak. Encircling the eagle are 13 stars symbolizing the original states. The United States Marine Corps is one of the five branches of the United States Armed Forces. Filling a vital role in national security, the Marines act as an amphibious, expeditionary, air-ground combined arms task force, having the capability of forcible entry from air, land and sea.
Modelled after an Air Force uniform button, the design depicts a large star containing a circle in the center. A pair of open wings emanate from the star. The background presents a stippled effect.

United States Armed Forces titles the reverse of the series and features the design of the Great Seal. The Great Seal is used officially on documents such as military insignias, passports, and since 1935, appears on the back of the one dollar bill. The Great Seal also appears on many flags. The design is best described as the coat of arms of the United States of America. Supporting the shield is the bald eagle displayed with outstretched wings. The eagle holds a bundle of 13 arrows in its left talon (signifying 13 original states) while an olive branch is grasped in its right talon. Together these signify that the United States has a strong desire for peace, but will always be ready for war. The eagle’s head is turned toward the olive branch symbolizing a preference for peace. Held in the eagle’s beak is a scroll with the motto E pluribus unum (“Out of Many, One). Above the eagle’s head is a glory/halo containing 13 stars.
