A bill authorizing Medal of Honor Commemorative coins was signed into law on November 6, 2009 by President Obama. The commemorative coin program will include $5 gold and $1 silver coins to be issued in the year 2011. The Medal of Honor is America's highest award for valor in action against an enemy force. Fewer than 3,500 Medals of Honor have been awarded to members of the United States Armed Forces. "The Medal of Honor Foundation is very grateful for the strong support of Congress and the President in the establishment of a Medal of Honor Commemorative Coin," said Nick Kehoe, President of the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation. "The Foundation is proud to help perpetuate the Medal of Honor's rich legacy of courage, sacrifice and selflessness through this coin honoring the Medal's 150th anniversary."
