The American Veterans Disabled for Life Commemorative Coin Act is signed into law by President George W. Bush (Public Law 110-277). The Act authorizes the United States Mint to produce and issue commemorative silver dollar coins in proof and uncirculated quantities to honor disabled veterans. The designs were recommended by the United States Mint to Secretary of the Treasury Timothy F. Geithner after consultation with the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee, U.S. Commission of Fine Arts and the Disabled Veterans’ Life Memorial Foundation (DVLMF). A $10 surcharge from each coin sold will go toward building the Memorial.
