In 1965, Colville was commissioned to design the images on the Canadian 1867-1967 centennial commemorative coin set. The set consists of the following designs: Rock dove on 1 cent coin, rabbit on 5 cent coin, mackerel on 10 cent coin, lynx on 25 cent coin, wolf on 50 cent coin and goose on the 1 dollar coin.

Here's the 2012 US commemorative Infantry Soldier Silver Dollar that was struck "in commemoration of the legacy of the United States Army Infantry and the establishment of the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center." (Public Law 110-357)

Per its authorizing legislation, the coin's designs were to "be emblematic of the courage, pride, sacrifice, sense of duty, and history of the United States Infantry."

The obverse of the coin depicts a modern Army infantry soldier charging forward while calling for his fellow soldiers to follow - the depiction is meant to symbolize the "Follow Me" motto of the Infantry. (Note: The motto can be traced back to World War II and Army Maj. Gen. Aubrey S. Newman who issued the cry when leading a regiment as part of General Douglas MacArthur's return to the Philippines in October 1944.) The obverse was designed by Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by US Mint Sculptor-Engraver Michael Gaudioso.

The coin's reverse depicts features the crossed rifles insignia of Infantry branch of the Army; it is worn by all members of the Infantry branch. The roots of the current insignia reach back to 1875 when crossed muskets replaced the previous infantry horn insignia. The muskets were replaced by rifles in 1905; rifles continue to be used for the insignia. The reverse design was the work of Ronald D. Sanders, a member of the Mint's Artistic Infusion Program; US Mint Sculptor-Engraver Norman E. Nemeth handled the sculpting of the design.

Nice example!

I did not like the obverse at first, but has grown on me. I really appreciate the simplicity of the reverse though.

Here's one of my favorite modern commemorative medals, the 1993 Benjamin Franklin Firefighters medal. It was struck "to commemorate Benjamin Franklin's contributions to the American Fire Service and to recognize the achievements and needs of America's fire services." (Public Law 102-406).

The obverse presents a front-facing portrait of Benjamin Franklin, along with a depiction of an original Union Fire Company helmet; Franklin helped found the Fire Company. It was designed and sculpted by US Mint Sculptor-Engraver Thomas D. Rogers.

The reverse design depicts a firefighter carrying a rescued child down a ladder. The design is the work of US Mint Sculptor-Engraver T. James Ferrell.

The medal is closely-related to the modern US commemorative coin program; it was first introduced in the US Congress as a coin proposal vs. a medal. (The original bill also included a call for a Gold Half Eagle.)

The medal was available from the Mint in Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated versions.
