SANTA MONICA, Calif. (October 1, 2014) – Rosland Capital – a leading, Santa Monica-based precious metals company – today announced a month-long promotion in conjunction with the American Red Cross, Santa Monica Chapter, which serves more than 90,000 people over 16 square miles within the Los Angeles region. Throughout the month of October, Rosland Capital will donate $1 to the American Red Cross for every Silver Peace Dollar sold – giving silver and numismatic enthusiasts a chance to rally behind the national organization’s emergency disaster preparedness, blood collection, international, health and safety, and armed forces services.
“The American Red Cross was the ideal partner for our organization,” Rosland Capital CEO Marin Aleksov said. “Rosland Capital is deeply committed to helping active military and veterans nationally and in the local Santa Monica community, and Red Cross’ services in these areas are unmatched.”
For more than 130 years, the American Red Cross has provided comfort and support to members of the United States military. 1,000 times a day, services are provided to 5.5 million military members and their families, as well as more than 22.4 million veterans, according to the American Red Cross. Proceeds from each Silver Peace Dollar coin sold will help military and veterans in need cope through deployment, engage in emergency communication with their families, recover from injuries and mental distress, while providing a smooth re-entrance into civilian life at the end of service.
About the Peace Dollar Silver Coin:
Ever since the birth of the United States, silver coins have been a part of its history. The Peace Dollar was minted from 1921 to 1928 and then again in 1934 and 1935. The Pittman Act of 1918 required in part that the United States strike millions of silver dollars. The U.S. Mint started with the Morgan Dollar; however, numismatists petitioned the government to issue a coin symbolic of peace following World War I. Anthony de Francisci was one of eight prominent sculptors invited to take part in a contest to design the Peace Dollar. He won after using his wife as a model to depict Lady Liberty.
