    Gaining admission to the United States Military Academy at West Point is no small feat. Not only must students have a stellar educational background, one must also be nominated by a federal Representative or Senator. If one cannot be nominated by their member of Congress, one could also be nominated by the President or Vice President of the United States. If the nomination process seems nearly impossible, the academic syllabus seems equally as rigorous, as 1,300 students typically begin class, only 1,000 students graduate. Tuition at the academy is paid for by the United States Army, but each cadet must serve upon graduation. Most cadets graduate as a commissioned second lieutenant in the Army.

    The obverse of the 2002 Uncirculated West Point Bicentennial Silver dollar shows five cadets marching. Three hold flags while the two on the ends are armed with rifles. This process is known as a Cadet Color Guard parade. In the background of the coin, West Point’s Washington Hall and Cadet Chapel are engraved. The obverse of the coin was designed by James Ferrell. The reverse of the coin shows the West Point logo. The cadets are known as the Black Knights and their logo shows a spartan helmet with a sword intersecting the helmet. Along the edge of the coin are the words “West Point Bicentennial” and “1802 2002”. The reverse of the coin was designed by veterean US Mint engraver sculptor John Mercanti.

    The 2002 Uncirculated West Point Bicentennial Commemorative Silver dollar has a mintage of 103,201 coins. The coin commemorates the 200th anniversary of West Points establishment in 1802.
