2022 PURPLE HEART 6-PC SET PCGS MS70/PR70 FDI GENERAL GEORGE W. CASEY JR. SIGNATURES
 
The Purple Heart is awarded to members of the U.S. Armed Forces wounded or killed by enemy action. Since World War I, an estimated 1.8 million men and women have received a Purple Heart. Its history reaches back to the American Revolution. In 1782, General George Washington gave orders establishing the Badge of Military Merit to honor merit among soldiers in the Continental Army.
 
This six-piece set comprises a $5 gold, $1 Silver, and clad half dollar in a business strike and proof strike. Each piece has been certified in the highest possible collector grade of Mint state 70 (MS70) or Proof 70 (PR70) condition by the leading coin grading service PCGS.
 
All six coins have the highly sought-after First Day of Issue designation, meaning they were among the very first coins released from the U.S. Mint. The genuine hand signature of General George W. Casey Jr. on each piece adds to the exclusivity and collectible value of these sets.
 
General George William Casey Jr., a four-star general served as the 36th Chief of Staff of the United States Army from 2007 to 2011. President George W Bush appointed him as Commanding General, Multi-National Force – Iraq, from 2004 to 2007, he led over 1 million soldiers. General Casey is a lifelong coin collector and the highest-ranking Military officer to sign coins for any coin grading service.
 
Unique one-time-only designs
 
The United States Mint has credited eleven designers and engravers for their work on these stunning patriotic designs.
 
$5 The obverse features the Purple Heart medal + A GRATEFUL NATION HONORS AND REMEMBERS reverse design that places George Washington’s signature under the Badge of Military Merit and over a textured stripe.
 
$1 the obverse design features the Purple Heart medal. Five stars represent the five branches of the military. The reverse design shows a woman in a World War I helmet as she bandages a wounded soldier on a stretcher. More than 23,000 women nurses served in the Army and Navy during the war.
 
The half-dollar design shows a figure in military fatigues and combat boots using a pair of crutches, his left leg is amputated from the thigh down. The Purple Heart medal appears behind the figure, and the inscription “ALL GAVE SOME” sits below the composition. The background field has a subtle flag motif.
 
The reverse design features a young boy holding the dress cap of an enlisted Marine. The silhouette of a Marine in dress blues stands behind him in negative space, emphasizing the loss that affects the families of Purple Heart recipients.
