Silver Dollar

  • Traditional coin used during the Silver Dollar Salute
  • The silver dollar will either be a Morgan or Peace silver dollar, depending upon availability.
  • Features

    When a new Army Officer received his or her first salute from an NCO, custom requires that the Officer present this experienced Soldier with a Silver Dollar. This ritual recognizes those who have paved the way and is a commitment to serve with the same honor. Marlow White would like to be one of the first to congratulate you on your commissioning. You join a long and honorable line of United States Army Officers. Thank you for the opportunity to play a small part in your first salute!

  • Authorized by Congress on April 2, 1792, the silver dollar is the only coin traditionally given in exchange for the first salute.
  • The silver dollar will either be a Morgan or Peace silver dollar, depending upon availability. We chose to offer these coins due to their silver ratio, in deference to authenticity.
  • Reviews


    The pictures of the coin show a high grade, UNCIRCULATED silver dollar. However, my buddy ordered one when he got fitted for his uniform and when it showed up it was a dirty, beat up cull coin that the coin shops sell for about 20 dollars. What is the actual grade of these coins?

    Does the silver dollar come with a case?

    No, it does not.

    Marlow White's swords and sabers have ceremonial blades. As such, they are built to strict military regulations to be used in drills, ceremonies, and displays. These blades are of the highest quality but are not sharpened for use as a weapon.
