Carry this handsome officially licensed John Wayne Collector's Coin in your pocket every day, and perhaps you'll be imparted with "the Duke's" timeless wit and acclaimed tough guy attitude. While we can't guarantee any mystical or luck-granting properties, we can assure you that this striking collectible coin will look great in any John Wayne collection or display. The coin's head features an exquisitely detailed bust of the Duke - decked out in his signature dust bitten cowboy hat and bandanna, as always - in stunning carved 3-D relief. "John Wayne" is emblazoned above Wayne's image and "1907-1979", below. Delicate snow-capped mountains are carved in the background.
The coin's tail includes a short summary of the Duke's life and career, which reads, "John Wayne (Duke) was born Marion R. Morrison in Winterset, Iowa. He had a prolific career starring in more than 175 films and won many awards and honors including the Oscar for True Grit and the Congressional Medal awarded for distinguished achievements and contributions."
At 1 3/8" in diameter (slightly larger than JFK Half Dollar), this copper colored metal alloy coin makes an impressive addition to any John Wayne or Old West collection or display. It also makes a fantastic gift for fans of the Duke or classic Western films.
