The obverse of the coin is a bald eagle flying in the sky. Do you notice the broken chain on one of its leg? There is a barbed wire around the design. The coin represents an eagle’s flight towards freedom. The engraver of the coin is Tom Nielson. "In God We Trust" and the year 1994 are the standard words engraved, plus the words Liberty and Freedom.
The reverse of the coin depicts the National Prisoner of War Museum, and engraved are the words E Pluribus Unum which is the motto of the United States of America. It is in Latin and translated to mean: Out of many, one. It also has the value of the coin of One Dollar.
