Description & Analysis

The U.S. Marshals Service is the country's oldest federal law enforcement agency. In celebration of the 225th anniversary of the Marshals, Congress authorized a commemorative coin program consisting of up to 750,000 clad half dollar coins, 500,000 silver dollars, and 100,000 $5 gold coins.

Even with designs emblematic of the Old West, overall sales for the Marshals coins were relatively low. As of the end of 2015, sales of the gold $5, silver dollar, and half dollar only reached 16%, 29%, and 12% of the maximum allotted.
