Aviation Ordnance Challenge Coin
In terms of military, Aviation Ordnance is any expendable weaponry (e.g. bombs, missiles, rockets, and gun ammunition) used by military aircraft. Aviation Ordnancemen (AO) operate and handle aviation ordnance equipment and they are responsible for the maintenance of guns, bombs, torpedoes, rockets, and missiles.
AOs perform their duties at sea on flight decks and ashore in hangars, on flight lines at air stations, or in shops under various environmental conditions. They work closely with others, do mostly physical work, and require little supervision. Aviation Ordnance Limited Duty Officers serve as officer technical managers in the field of operations and maintenance of aviation ordnance and aircraft armament.
We had an order from the U.S. Navy’s Ordnance University to produce custom challenge coins for their Aviation Ordnance Managers. They wanted a coin design that could represent the spirit of the U.S. Navy’s Aviation Ordnancemen, by having their insignia and the images of the aircraft & weapons put on both sides of the coin.
We placed their logo, a winged skull with a fiery top, on the front side of the coin, and had it embossed. On top of the logo, we engraved some ballistic missiles which represent the weapons handled by the AOs. On the back of the coin, we put some reliefs of the aircraft and a couple of U.S. Navy insignias.
