My sister and her husband both graduated from the Air Force Academy. At the time, I was enlisted in the USAF and was in uniform at the ceremony so I was the first person to salute my brother in law and received his silver dollar. I'm sure it was an Eisenhower dollar as that was the only game in town at the time (1982).

In hindsight, a genuine silver dollar (such as a Peace dollar or Morgan dollar) would have been something the recipient would keep forever. I think that your choice of a USMC silver dollar would likewise be something the recipient would keep forever.
Check back later for a witty comment.
