June 6, 2016 marks the 125th Anniversary of the founding of the Oregon State Society SAR. The Society has issued two coins to commemorate the anniversary. The coins are available for $15.00 each (plus $5.00 shipping fee). The funds raised by selling coins go to the Revolutionary War Memorial Project in Beaverton.
The William Cannon coin has a depiction of the Pioneer statue at the top of the Oregon State capital building on one side and a bust representing William Cannon on the other. Both sides have a dark grey background. William Cannon is the only Revolutionary War Patriot known to be buried in Oregon.
The Memorial coin has a depiction of an Patriot Officer on one side and the Revolutionary War Memorial on the other side. Both sides have a green background.
You can get your coin or coins by sending a check for $15.00 for each coin you want to order made out to “Oregon State Society SAR.” Add $5.00 for postage. Include your mailing address and your email address (if there are questions about your order).
