Many collectors enjoy assembling sets of military-themed coins. Within the classic US series of commemorative coins, I've come up with six "front-and-center" military-themed coins and two "subtle but genuine" military-themed coins that fit the bill for a targeted topical collection.
Here's an index to the posts I created about the classic US military commemorative coins over in the "Post Your..." forum area; each includes a brief history on its military subject that is new/different vs. my previous posts about these coins here.
(Note: There are quite a few military-themed coins in the US modern commemorative series, but those coins are for another day and list!)
Do you think I should have included any others? Let me know!
As I've stated in each of my previous Index posts, there are many different coins from around the world on display in the target thread. IMO, some have a rather tenuous connection to the theme - I don't consider the simple inclusion of a gun or sword in a coin's design to be enough to classify it as having a military theme! - but there are plenty of coins that do match the theme quite well. So, I encourage you to scroll around a bit while you check out one or more of my US commemorative posts!
