As one of the most iconic moments of World War II, this Pulitzer Prize–winning photograph proved to be so powerful, it’s often recognized as helping to bring about the end of World War II.

Iwo Jima gold coin honors the brave individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Battle of Iwo Jima, and the others that followed throughout World War II.
The Battle of Iwo Jima consisted of 36 days of unrelenting and violent warfare. While Iwo Jima was declared secure, the cost of taking Iwo Jima from Imperial Japan was high. With over 26,000 American casualties, including 6,800 dead, it was the bloodiest battle in the history of the U.S. Marine Corp.
U.S. Money Reserve worked closely on designing and producing the 1 oz. Iwo Jima gold coin with Australia’s Perth Mint, one of the most established and trusted names in government-issued coin production.
