The interactive exhibit, set to debut in 2021, will honor the service and sacrifice made by those Americans who served during World War I (1914–18), with a particular focus on the integral importance and achievements of U.S. naval aviation during one of the largest conflicts in world history.
To mark this historic occasion, U.S. Money Reserve will present to the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation its “Great War Series,” a commemorative series of five coins in honor of the end of World War I.

The announcement also coincides with U.S. Money Reserve's launch of its exclusive “Great War Series” of legal-tender gold and silver coins.
“It is a great privilege to be affiliated with the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation,” said Angela Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Money Reserve. “This important story is all of our stories. We honor those brave men and women who have served our country and will never forget the sacrifices that were made to ensure our freedoms today and for all future generations.”
In addition to the upcoming exhibit, U.S. Money Reserve and the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation look to develop a series of events and initiatives for 2020 and beyond.
“It is a great privilege to work with U.S. Money Reserve,” said retired Marine Lt. Gen. Duane Thiessen, president of the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation. “We are very grateful for this organization's commitment to helping us build an exhibit that will pay tribute to this powerful time in history. This beautiful series of coins is an incredible symbol of this exciting new venture.”
Four coins in “The Great War Series” comprise the End of World War I 100th Anniversary set, including a 2 oz. Proof Gold in a high-relief format, a 1/4 oz. Gold Proof, a 1 oz. Silver Proof, and a 5 oz. Silver Antiqued coin. The Treaty of Versailles 100th Anniversary 1 oz. Gold Proof was designed by U.S. Money Reserve. These government-issued coins were minted in limited quantities and struck from .9999 pure gold or .9999 pure silver, and designated as official legal tender. U.S. Money Reserve is the exclusive U.S. distributor of the End of World War I 100th Anniversary coin series and the worldwide distributor of the Treaty of Versailles 100th Anniversary coin.
“Now has never been a more important time to be united by our past and remember these stories to build a stronger future together,” said Thiessen. “In honor of the men and women who have proudly served our country, we proudly serve them by commemorating their memory and ultimate sacrifice.”
