Quick Overview

If you were ever in the military service, when you hear the name, “USS Missouri,” a single image flashes into mind, of General Mac Arthur directing the Japanese delegation to sign the Formal Instrument of Surrender on September 2nd, 1945. For this moment alone, she will forever have a place in the hearts and history of the American people.

Launched at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on January 29th, 1944, the USS Missouri was the last battleship ever built by the United States. She saw service at Iwo Jima and Okinawa in World War II and again during the Korean Conflict before being decommissioned in 1955. Recommissioned in 1986, she participated in several naval exercises in the Pacific, but her guns were never fired again in anger. In 1997, the USS Missouri was again decommissioned and began her journey to her final port of call... Pearl Harbor. Now this honored old battleship sits high in the water at a slot on Pearl Harbor's famed "Battleship Row"... next to another famous battleship, the remains of the USS Arizona. The OIP for the 39mm one ounce .999 fine silver Proof was $25
