2024 Greatest Generation Commemorative Coin

The National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the United States, the more than 400,000 who died, and the spirit, sacrifice, and triumph of the American people in the defining event of the 20th century. The Memorial also celebrates the commitment of what has been called the “Greatest Generation” to the common defense of the nation and to the broader causes of peace and freedom from tyranny throughout the world.

The Greatest Generation Commemorative Coin Act, signed into law on August 3, 2022, authorizes the U.S. Treasury to mint coins in 2024 in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the dedication of the World War II Memorial.

Surcharges in the amount of $35 for each $5 gold coin sold; $10 for each silver dollar sold; and $5 for each half dollar sold—totaling $50 for each three-coin set sold—are authorized to be provided to the Friends of the National World War II Memorial to support the National Park Service in maintaining and repairing the World War II Memorial, and for educational and commemorative programs.

And you'll be able to purchase these special commemorative coins through the U.S. Mint website in early-2024!
