After sitting on the sidelines of World War II for more than two years, the United States was sucker-punched by Japan when it attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941.

The US industrial complex had been supporting the Allies in Europe through a lend-lease program that provided tanks, guns, ammunition, and other support to Britain and France as they faced the Nazi scourge on the continent. It wasnt until Japan attacked Pearl Harbor that the United States stood up to join the fight. Over the course of the next four years, United States Military forces would fight a successful two-front war against Nazism in Europe and the colonial expansionism of Imperial Japan in the Pacific.
2 oz Im Counting on You Silver Bars are available as part of the Fight For Freedoms Sake Series from the Osborne Mint. This collection offers four beautiful interpretations from among the more than 200,000 different propaganda posters used to drum up support among the American populace for the war. These bars are available individually with acrylic capsules, feature a unique serial number inscribed on the obverse, and come with a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint.
Obverse design elements on these 2 oz Im Counting on You Silver Bar capture one of the most popular images of World War II: Uncle Sam. In this design, Uncle Sam encourages Americans to support the war effort by keeping US Military movements from getting into enemy hands. With one finger extended over his mouth, Uncle Sam suggests Americans not discuss Troop Movements, Ship Sailings, or War Equipment.
Reverse imagery on the 2 oz Im Counting on Your Silver Bar is shared with all four design issues in the Fight For Freedoms Sake Series. Here, you can see brave fighting men from the United States Armed Forces advancing on the enemy.
