1993 WW II 50th Anniversary Half Dollar

The U.S. Commemorative program the 1991-1995 World War II Half Dollar is tad confusing as it was minted in 1993 but the date of issue appears nowhere on the coin. The date range of 1991-1995 is actually a 50 year anniversary of World War II from 1941-1945 and not the year or years of mintage. Additionally, it was one of three coins issued, which also included a silver dollar and $5 gold coin.
