The Woodlands, TX -(AmmoLand.com)- Global Monetary Reserve, the nation’s leading precious metals firm, today announced an authorized limited release series of commemorative precious metal coins and bars that honor U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s memory and his spirit of bravery and patriotism.
The coins will be released, in collaboration with the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2015. Veteran’s Day marks the one-year anniversary of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, which is dedicated to serving military and first responders through meaningful interactive experiences that enrich family relationships.
The most lethal sniper in American history, Kyle repeatedly put his life on the line to protect his fellow troops in battle, earning two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars for his unsurpassed valor and courage under fire. Kyle told his story in a bestselling memoir that was later adapted into a box office record-breaking film.
“Coinage is more than a collectible. It’s a form of art that preserves a moment in history and tells a story to future generations. We wanted to be a part of presenting something lasting and of heirloom quality that is symbolic of Kyle’s story, something that can be treasured and passed down from grandparents to grandkids, for generations to come,” said Charles Stevens, Global Monetary Reserve’s Chief Operating Officer.
The 1 ounce Chris Kyle Frog Foundation Commemorative Silver Proof Coin is composed of .999 fine silver. Stevens said these exquisitely finished coins display a billowing American flag on the obverse, or heads side, and the official Chris Kyle Frog Foundation logo rendered in rich detail on the reverse. The logo is an intricate melding of the tattoos worn by Kyle, which symbolizes his respect for fallen comrades and his love of God.
The 11.340 gram Chris Kyle Frog Foundation Copper Medallion Series is a set of two rounds composed of .999 pure copper. Each features the Foundation logo on the reverse, with the American flag on the obverse side of one coin and Kyle’s home state of Texas on the other.
