What price freedom and liberty as symbolized on our coinage...
As I was viewing a group of coins this weekend, it suddenly struck me - the strong, unwavering, and continuous focus on United States coinage of this country's citizens' right to "Freedom and Liberty".
And on THIS weekend , I couldn't overlook the significant price paid by so many to repeatedly assure that we all continue to enjoy these "gifts".
This sacrifice has been made from the Revolutionary War; to the Civil War; to the World Wars; and a wide range of other wars, skirmishes, actions, etc.
Our coins are or should be a constant reminder that there is a dear price paid for our treasured Freedom and Liberty.
