The image most Americans have of the combat medic was brought into popular culture through the feature film M.A.S.H. and the subsequent TV series of the same name. Medics have been integrated into US Military units since the American Civil War, but the history of combat medicine dates all the way back to the Roman Empire and the Roman Army.
All of these 1 oz Antique Soldier Bullion Series Medic Martinez Silver Rounds are available to you for purchase online in protective blistercards. Each silver round is sealed in protective plastic and surrounded by a card that includes the Certificate of Authenticity details from the mint. The antique polish applied to the rounds creates a sense of age in the visual appearance of the rounds.
On the obverse field of Antique Soldier Bullion Series Medic Martinez Silver Rounds, you will find a depiction of the unit medic. Here, we can see Medic Martinez running through the battlefield wearing his medic’s helmet. This helmet is instantly recognizable on the field of battle with its cross. Though specific designs can vary, these crosses are either white with red trim or red crosses on a field of white, with the latter being far more common.
The reverse side of 1 oz Antique Medic Martinez Silver Rounds comes with the common design element for the collection. There is a five-pointed star at the center set against a backdrop of light rays. The name of the series features on this side, along with the weight, metal content, and purity of the round.
