The coin's obverse (heads side) was designed and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart. The design features the legs and boots of three disabled veterans, which pays tribute to the service and sacrifice of our disabled veterans. The inscription THEY STOOD UP FOR US is in the banner along the coin's upper rim. Additional inscriptions on the obverse are IN GOD WE TRUST, 2010 and LIBERTY.

The coin's reverse (tails side) was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Thomas Cleveland and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna. The design depicts a forget-me-not flower at the base of a wreath wrapped in a ribbon that cradles and supports clusters of oak branches. The oak branches represent strength, while the forget-me-not is a widely accepted symbol of remembrance for those who sacrificed their lives for our country. The inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Take This Moment to Honor Our Disabled Defenders of Freedom, and ONE DOLLAR.

Surcharges from sales of the commemorative coin are authorized to be paid to the Disabled Veterans' LIFE Memorial Foundation to support the construction of the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington, D.C., authorized by Congress in 2000.
