2012-W Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Infantry { PCGS-4 } (Jul'2012) Mintage: 109,623 (proof) Expansive open mirrors offset in striking contrast today's fighting foot soldier advancing with automated weaponry on the obverse. The reverse shows the crossed rifles insignia, the branch insignia of the Infantry. Large perfect fields make these devices stand out nicely.
