During World War II, Chinese Americans served in all branches of the military and fought in every theater of operation. They served with distinction, earning many military honors for their service and heroism. The number of Chinese nationals and Chinese Americans living in the U.S. at the start of World War II was limited because of discriminatory policies. Despite their small number, however, approximately 20,000 served in the Armed Forces, and of these, approximately 40 percent were not U.S. citizens.
Our Nation is forever indebted to these veterans for their bravery, valor, dedication, commitment, and sacrifice, particularly in the face of discrimination.
The United States Mint is now accepting orders for 1.5 inch bronze duplicates of the Chinese American Veterans of World War II Congressional Gold Medal. The obverse and reverse designs of the medal will be unveiled on our website when the Congressional Gold Medal is presented.
Shipping of the bronze duplicates will also begin after the Congressional Gold Medal has been presented.
