The United States Mint has released the line art for the 2021 National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum commemorative coins. These designs were selected from the candidate designs released by CCAC back in September. The set of commemoratives will consist of a $5 gold coin, a silver Dollar coin, and a clad Half Dollar coin, all with unique designs. While the coins are slated for release in 2021, the Mint has not published a release date for the coins.
The gold coin will have a $5 face value and will be made of 90% gold. A total of 50,000 coins will be minted across all product sets. The Obverse was sculpted by Phebe Hemphill and was designed by Frank Morris. The Reverse was sculpted by Craig Campbell and designed by Ronald D. Sanders.
The silver Dollar coins will have a $1 face value and will be made of 99.9% silver. A total of 400,000 coins will be minted across all product sets. The Obverse, like the gold coin, was sculpted by Phebe Hemphill and designed by Frank Morris. The Reverse was sculpted by John P. McGraw and designed by Ronald D. Sanders.
Finally, the Mint will produce a clad Half Dollar coin as part of the commemorative series. 750,000 of these coins will be produced across all Mint products and will be made of the standard clad composition of 8.33% Nickel and 91.67% copper. The Obverse was sculpted by John P. McGraw and designed by Ronald D. Sanders while the Reverse was sculpted by Renata Gordon and designed by Heidi Wastweet.
According to the Mint’s 2021 Product Schedule, there will be a total of seven products for this commemorative series released with the coins being available in both Proof and Uncirculated finishes.
