National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum 2021 Proof $5 Gold Coin Obverse

After having the commemorative coins available for pre-order for over a month, the United States Mint has finally released the official coin images for the 2021 National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum commemorative coins. To this point, the Mint has only had line art of the coins available on the Product Schedule page and the individual product pages. That changed over the weekend with images of the coins themselves now available for viewing.

As a reminder, there are five unique products available for this commemorative series:

  • $5 Proof Gold Coin – $681.25
  • $5 Uncirculated Gold Coin – $671.25
  • Proof Clad Half Dollar – $35.00
  • Uncirculated Clad Half Dollar – $33.00
  • Proof Silver Dollar – $74.00
  • Uncirculated Silver Dollar – $69.00
  • Three-Coin Proof Set (Contains one of each coin) – $746.75

The gold coin has 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 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.

All of these commemorative coins remain readily available with pre-orders being accepted on the Mint’s site. You can find each coin using the links above. As of this post, the Mint is scheduled to start shipping the coins on March 17, 2021 at which time the coins will be available immediately on the Mint’s site.

Surcharges in the amount of $10 for each silver dollar sold are authorized to be paid to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Inc., for educational and outreach programs and exhibits.
