The Ghost Army Congressional Gold Medal Act provides for the award of a Congressional Gold Medal to the “Ghost Army,” in recognition of their unique and highly distinguished service in conducting deception operations in Europe during World War II. These deceptions created the appearance of sizable American forces where there were none, and drew the enemy away from Allied troops. Ghost Army operations were integral to several Allied victories across Europe, and reduced American casualties.

The obverse design depicts the four main methods of subterfuge practiced by the Ghost Army. A telegrapher is shown keying a message in Morse code together with a soldier sewing a phony unit patch onto his uniform. In the background, a soldier stands alongside a half-track with a loudspeaker attached to it, and behind a group of soldiers carry an inflatable tank. The inscriptions are "THE GHOST ARMY," "WORLD WAR II," and "ACT OF CONGRESS 2022."

The reverse design depicts the emblems of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops and the 3133rd Signal Service Company. A narrative inscription fills the field, presenting the information like a telegraph transmission, the treatment of the text reinforcing the secretive nature of the Ghost Army's mission. The inscription reads "IN HONOR OF THE 23RD HEADQUARTERS SPECIAL TROOPS AND THE 3133RD SIGNAL SERVICE COMPANY - AKA THE GHOST ARMY - FOR GREAT COURAGE, INGENUITY - IN NORMANDY, NORTHERN FRANCE, CENTRAL EUROPE, ARDENNES-ALSACE, THE RHINELAND, PO VALLEY."
