The reverse features Minerva holding a shield and the Union flag, flanked by Civil War-era cannon. This gem is flawlessly executed with very effective use of perfect multiply reflective fields. This half eagle, joins its commemorative army counterpart as on of the lowest mintage coins of the series.

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: The Medal of Honor is considered to be the highest personal decoration in different military personal. The 2011-P Medal of Honor coin was struck to commemorate the Medal of Honor Medal itself (not the coin) which has been awarded to fewer than 3,500 individuals since its inception in 1861.

First Strike: Coins submitted to PCGS within the first 30 days from the original release date, qualified to receive a special First Strike designation on the holder.
