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.
