179th Infantry Regiment Coin

The 179th Infantry Regiment, also called “Tomahawks”, is an infantry regiment of the United States Army’s National Guard. It was constituted in the Oklahoma Volunteer Militia as the 1st Infantry Regiment, on the 2nd of May 1890. As a component of the “fighting 45th” Infantry Division, they have a major portion of the Sicilian and Italian Campaigns, much of the French and German Campaigns, or the war in Europe.

The battalion is an organic element of the 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team of the Oklahoma Army National Guard. Currently, the 1st Battalion is the only active battalion in the regiment and is organized as a combined arms battalion under the brigade unit of action table of organization and equipment.

We had an opportunity to produce a unique and one-of-a-kind custom challenge coin for them. As opposed to the common round-shaped challenge coin, they wanted to have one with the shape of a raven standing on a plaque. They also want to have the name of one of their officer, their insignia, and their motto to be engraved on the back side of the coin.

For this kind of extraordinary design, we had to make sure that the aesthetic and the construction were coming along nicely. You can see in the photo that the machined details of the feathers are perfectly painted in black, with only red paint for the raven’s eye as am accent.
