With the 56th and final release of The America the Beautiful Series, The United States Mint presents the 5 oz 2021 America the Beautiful | Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site Silver Coin!
Active between the years of 1940 until 1948, the Tuskegee Airmen of Alabama, also known as the Redtails, were an all-African American fighter squadron active during world war II. The proud and proficient squadron fought over 1,578 combat missions and maintained an excellent service record providing escort support on 179 bombing missions. Ultimately the Redtails served their country with honor, and distinction, accounting for eight Purple Hearts, one Silver Star, 96 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and 744 Air Medals, to name a few. These heralded airmen served their country with honour and distinction and are aptly immortalized on 999 pure silver!
Illustrated on the coin's reverse is a Tuskegee airman, strapping up his helmet with a look of pride and determination as he prepares for flight training at Moton Field, in Tuskegee Alabama. Shading, texturing, and careful etching are all applied to produce a detailed and beautifully rendered image. Within the background, two redtails fly in formation, with the airbase also visible. The inscription, "They fought two wars," is the legend, denotive of the fact that these men fought the evils of the axis powers, but also racial discrimination and hatred on their own soil.
The obverse displays President George Washington's right-facing bust, with the inscriptions "Liberty", and "In God we Trust."
