First Salute DIY Frame Kit


What Silver Dollar coin will you be inserting into your frame? (please be specific - i.e. American Silver Eagle, Peace Dollar etc.)

The “Silver Dollar Salute” is a revered military tradition dating back to the 19th century. It marks the transition from officer trainee to leader of soldiers and results in a cadet becoming a commissioned officer. This is also when new officers present a Silver Dollar to the enlisted service member who gives them their first salute as an officer. For more information about the First Salute, visit our blog post HERE.
