Bronze Medal Commemorates Nisei Soldiers of World War II
 
This medal was authorized by Congress and produced by the U.S. Mint. It is a smaller version of the Congressional Gold Medal rewarded to Nisei soldiers. The 1-1/2-inch bronze medal is scarce and collectable. Three-dimensional engraving means every detail is easy to see.
 
The medal pays tribute to Americans of Japanese decent who served in during World War II. (The word Nisei is a Japanese term for children born in a new country to Japanese immigrants.) Their dedication to their country was finally acknowledged on November 2, 2011, when the 100th Infantry Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team, and Military Intelligence Service were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.
 
The obverse (heads) shows Nisei soldiers who fought in both the European and Pacific theaters. It also includes the motto of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, “Go for Broke,” which was later adopted by all three units. The reverse (tails) pictures the insignias of the units and the years the U.S. was involved in the war, 1941-1946.
