A female, present-day U.S. marshal is featured on the CCAC-endorsed half dollar obverse. The recommended reverse incorporates symbols reflecting the service’s storied history.
For the reverse of the coin the panel strongly supported an image of the unit’s insignia inscribed “Act of Congress 2013” and “First Special Service Force.” It had 24 points, far outdistancing other designs.
The same coin and medal designs will be placed before the Commission of Fine Arts on March 20. Their recommendations, along with those of the CCAC, will be forwarded to Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew.
Lew, or his designee, will have the final word on what will go on the coins and the medal.
