ADAB Fire Dept. Challenge Coin
Al Dhafra Air Base aka ADAB, is a military installation in the United Arab Emirates. Al Dhafra hosts the United States Air Force’s 380th Air Expeditionary Wing (380 AEW), which was established at the base on 25 January 2002.
The 380 AEW’s mission is to carry out combat operations to provide high-altitude all-weather intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, airborne command and control and air-refueling for the military intervention against ISIL/ISIS (known by the US military as Operation Inherent Resolve) and NATO led operations in Afghanistan (Operation Resolute Support). They commissioned their custom challenge coin to us, and as you can see on the photos, the result is a one-of-a-kind challenge coin.
They wanted a coin with unusual coffin-like shape, with simple graphics, and quite extensive letterings on its both sides. No overwhelming patterns or engravings, just the ADAB Fire Department letterings, some planes silhouette on one side and engraved & painted flags of the United States of America and United Arab Emirates.
The brass-colored base material emanates luxurious vibe to the coin, while the solid glossy colors of the backgrounds gives it a contemporary feel. The engraved letterings and graphics are machined perfectly. All the lines are cut right and the colored areas are painted flawlessly, even the small elements such as the stars on the American flag.
