2018 Silver Dollars Minted at West Point are Now Available

Each year the West Point Parents Club of MA honors each graduating Firstie from Massachusetts with a gift of an American flag that has been flown over the U.S. Capitol, and a 1oz silver American Eagle dollar that was minted at West Point during their year of graduation.  The silver dollar has a special meaning for the graduates, as tradition dictates that they provide a silver dollar to the first person to render a salute to the new officer.  The silver dollar that the parents club provides to the new second lieutenants are symbolic gestures.  Hopefully, they will keep them as a memento — as they are worth much more than $1 in silver!

The silver dollar coins are available for purchase directly from the US Mint.  If you are interested, the coins are available at www.usmint.gov.   Some families have historically collected coins for each year that their cadet attends West Point.
