ARC 7 de Agosto Coin

ARC 7 de Agosto (PZE-47) is a Colombian-built large offshore patrol vessel of the Colombian Navy. The construction, modified design, and engineering were made by Colombians and first laid down in August 2013. It was built by the firm Cotecmar in Cartagena, Colombia, and used the German design of the Fassmer OPV-80 class, modified to fulfill the requirements of the Colombian Navy.

The ARC 7 de Agosto ship was also involved in the ‘Colombia Against Piracy’ campaign in 2015. On Saturday 8th August 2015, the Colombian warship arrived in the Gulf of Aden to start her counter-piracy operations in close collaboration with Operation Atalanta. It worked together with the EU Naval Force in escorting and protecting World Food Programme (WFP) vessels and vulnerable shipping along the Somali coastline and also helped to deter and disrupt any acts of piracy in the Gulf of Aden.

This custom challenge coin was ordered to commemorate the event and they wanted something colorful and distinguished. They requested to have the sculpted front view of the ship on one side, and their insignia, along with the flags of the countries that were collaborating, on the other side of the coin.

It turned out to be one of the most colorful and prettiest custom coins that we’ve ever produced. All the colors and the machined details go together in harmony.
