Saluting America's Fugitive Hunters

U.S. Marshals are the nation's primary fugitive hunting organization and capture more federal fugitives each year than all other national law enforcement agencies combined. For over 200 years, U.S. Marshals and their Deputies have served as the instruments of civil authority by all three branches of the U.S. government.

Through the years, we've created prestigious custom-minted coins featuring the insignia worn by U.S. Marshals to salute the work they do. In the coin displayed above, the U.S. Marshals Service's five-pointed star emblem is selectively plated in 24-karat gold. Exhibiting our ability to master fine detail in metal, the crest and shield contained in the center of the star features every aspect of the design perfectly rendered. This attention to detail is our way of honoring the courageous service of America's Marshals.

The Tin Star

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?As the cattle industry and mining expanded into the American West, so too did the number of people on the frontier. A means of marking the local Peace Officer soon became necessary. Lack of local badge-makers meant such lawmen had to make their badges from materials at hand. The tin star evolved as a star cutout from the top or bottom of a tin can. Another popular method of making a badge was to use a coin and cut out a star from the center. The Texas Rangers cut a star shape from a coin: the 1800s Mexican Ocho Reales (pieces of eight). In 1962 the Rangers resumed this practice using the 1940s Mexican Cinco Peso coins.
