The Attack on Pearl Harbor was, in the words of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, “a date which will live in infamy.” The surprise attack on the U.S. naval base occurred in the early morning of December 7th, 1941. 2,400 Americans died as a result, and the following day Congress approved Roosevelt’s request to enter World War II. This historical event is now commemorated in a stunning new legal tender note from the Merrick Mint.

In addition to 2,400 deaths, the Pearl Harbor attack led to 1,000 injured and caused damage to 20 naval vessels, 8 battleships, and roughly 300 planes. Japan had hoped the attack would force the United States to change its economic sanctions against them, but instead, it prompted the U.S to declare war. Ultimately the Allied Forces, which included the United States, the Soviet Union, and Great Britain, triumphed in the conflict, with victory declared on May 8th, 1945.
