2022 PURPLE HEART MS70/PR70 PCGS FDI GENERAL GEORGE W. CASEY JR. SIGNATURE
 
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 two-piece set comprises the official U.S. Mint Purple Heart Silver Dollar certified in the highest possible collector grade of perfect Mint state 70 (MS70) and Perfect Proof 70 (PR70). Both 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.

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.
