Description

This 1ozt. .999 Fine Silver medal is a tribute to the military sniper.  The sniper is a marksman or qualified specialist who operates alone, in a pair, or with a sniper team to maintain close visual contact with the enemy and shoot enemies from concealed positions or distances exceeding the detection capabilities of enemy personnel.  Snipers often become the stuff of legend and nightmares for enemy soldiers.  This sort of comfort with gruesome violence is something snipers are known for. They don’t have the luxury of averting their eyes while someone else does the killing.

Through World War II, snipers were so loathed that they were generally executed on sight, rather than taken captive. Only in the last two decades, experts say, have snipers’ reputations turned from reviled to heroic. For the United States, that transformation owes something to the particular geography of the Iraq war—not rural and heavily covered with foliage, like Vietnam, but urban and multi-level.

  • Contains: 1ozt. .999 Fine Silver
  • Obverse: Sniper peering into his scope surrounded by foliage. Encircled by the motto “FROM A PLACE YOU WILL NOT SEE,” “COMES A SOUND YOU WILL NOT HEAR.” Separated by two shell headstamps in the popular sniper caliber of 7.62×39. Dentils on the edge against the outer rim.
  • Reverse: A detailed view into an actual scope favored by some snipers, domed, surrounded by radials. The outer text, “THE SNIPER,” and ONE TROY OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER is separated by 5 shell headstamps (all caliber of 7.62×39) on either side.  Dentils on the edge against the outer rim.
