More than 2,700 of the U.S. Marshals Service Proof Silver Dollar have been sold this year. Helping to raise money for the future U.S. Marshals Museum in Fort Smith, the fundraising campaign recently passed the $3.5 million mark in coin sales surcharges and is in the home stretch of raising a maximum $5 million. A new deal has made the Marshals coins available at Walmart sporting goods departments in Fort Smith and Greenwood.
The coin features a frontier-era Marshal holding a warrant that reads “Wanted In Fort Smith,” and an outer ring inscription of the core values: Justice, Integrity and Service.
CoinUpdate.com, a numismatic market website, announced in early June that the silver dollar proof U.S. Marshals Service coin commemorating the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Marshals Service has been the “best-selling U.S. Mint commemorative coin of the year.”
The U.S. Marshals Commemorative Coins went on sale Jan. 29, and the museum has until the end of the year to meet its $5 million goal. The three-coin set, which also included the $5 gold and clad half-dollar coins, have sold out at a maximum 15,000 sets that raised $720,000 in surcharges.
