Delta Detachment Challenge Coin

Delta Detachment, famously known as “Delta Force,” officially known as 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (1st SFOD-D), is one of the U.S. special missions units primarily focused on the counterterrorism mission. It is a special operations force of the United States Army, under the operational control of JSOC. Delta Force’s missions primarily involve counterterrorism, hostage rescue, direct action, and special reconnaissance, often against high-value targets.

Compared to the United States’ military history, Delta is relatively young, having been formed in 1977 by its first commander, Col. Charles Beckwith. With the growing threat of terrorism around the world, Beckwith saw a need for a precision strike force within the Army after working with the British Special Air Service (SAS) in the early 1970s.

The custom challenge coin that we crafted was ordered by the Delta Force and the Madigan Army Medical Center. The design concept of the coin is a patch so it was shaped like a shield with a ribbon underneath. The insignias of both units were placed on the sides of the challenge coin.

The Delta Force’s side has a dinosaur skull and crossbones with a black background, finished with silver, white, and yellow paint. The Madigan Army Medical Center has an etched and painted image of a mountain and a US flag in front of it.
