The U.S. Coast Guard Academy is proud to educate leaders of a multi-mission, maritime military force. Commissioned officers in the Coast Guard lead teams of men and women and are continually called on to serve their community, country and fellow citizens.
While the United States Coast Guard is notable as the oldest life-saving service in the world, its roles include more than just maritime safety and security. The Coast Guard is also called upon for critical service in protection of natural resources, maritime mobility (management of maritime traffic, commerce and navigation) and national defense.
Perfect for anyone that has successfully completed or works for the US Coast Guard Academy, this special coin is a special symbol of achievement and pride.
Minted from brass, and imbued with bold colored enamel on both sides, this medallion is dedicated to the law enforcement professionals who protect us from the criminals who threaten our society.
