Following the horrors of World War I, the victorious Allies set about rebuilding Europe and providing security forces to the devastated nations of Western Europe. US soldiers from the American Expeditionary Forces were stationed throughout Europe to help stabilize local areas, and members of the force located in Paris, France, founded an organization to support the needs of US soldiers as they returned home.
The American Legion was founded at the American Club near Place de la Concorde in Paris on March 15, 1919. Over the past century, the American Legion has taken a leading role in organizing commemorative events to honor US soldiers, provide assistance at VA hospitals and clinics, and lobby on behalf of interests that involve veterans and service members.
On the obverse face of the 2019-W $5 American Legion 100th Anniversary Gold coin is a design that commemorates the organization’s founding in France after victory in World War I.
