Given for achievement. Traded for camaraderie. Collected for patriotism. Left in remembrance.
- Coast Guard Challenge Coin bears an anchor, a shield with stars and stripes with the motto semper paratus (always ready) along with the phrases integrity is our standard, we value our diverse workforce, we are professionals, we exist to serve and we serve with pride all on the obverse
- The Coast Guard seal, an anchor and the words us coast guard and honor-respect-devotion to duty are on the reverse
- Brass coin with handsome enameled coloring
- Striking cut-out design gives the anchor bold dimension
Fitting tribute to past and present members of the U.S. Coast Guard.
