Welcome to the third issue of our “Real Heroes” series. On this incredible coin, we honor those that serve in the military special forces units. These heroes are the best of the best and are routinely called upon to carry out the most difficult and dangerous missions. Many of their missions are done in secrecy and great care is taken to protect these heroes and their identity. Which is exactly the feeling you get when you look at this coin. Specialized uniforms and equipment are a telltale sign of a special forces soldier and these can be seen on this black proof finished coin in exceptional detail and in ultra-high relief! The soldier’s protective goggles are expertly colorized to contrast his helmet and mask. It’s a striking look that puts enemy forces on notice!
The ultra-high relief of the design extends all the way to the edges and sets against a background of a honeycomb pattern and the Real Heroes logo. Just beside on the rim you can find the traditional motto of the special forces “de oppresso liber” in micro minting. The obverse shows special forces being dropped in under the cover of night with the primal understanding that “Only the brave are free”. This magnificent 3 oz silver Black proof is limited to only 750 which makes them just as special and rare as heroes are!
