 Jeep Green I Presume
Here is a link to a high res photo of the Anniversary Wrangler in what I believe is "Jeep Green". I also notice that the bumper end caps look more "rugged" instead of the bigger standard type.

Kind of a joke much like the Golden Eagle versions....... Just another way for them to charge to much for a Wrangler.
