FORT SMITH — Officials with the U.S. Mint have unveiled the three commemorative coins that will be sold next year to raise money for a planned $50 million U.S. Marshals Museum in western Arkansas.

The coins were revealed Wednesday at the Justice Department in Washington. The coins mark the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Marshals Service and go on sale next year, ahead of the planned 2017 opening of the new museum in Fort Smith.

The $5 coin memorializes marshals who have died in the line of service. The $1 coin honors the agency's frontier history, with the back of the coin showing a U.S. Marshal with a poster that says "Wanted in Ft. Smith."

The half-dollar coin focuses on the agency's diverse missions and features depictions of current and past U.S. Marshals.
