Goldwater ANGB Challenge Coin
Goldwater ANGB (Air National Guard Base), formerly Sky Harbor Air National Guard Base, is a facility of the United States Air National Guard that exists adjoining the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. It was built as the result of a 99-year lease in 1949 and was rebuilt in the 90s to accommodate the creation of a third runway at the airport.
The Phoenix Sky Harbor Air National Guard Base was renamed Goldwater Air National Guard Base on December 9th, 2016, in honor of former United States Senator from Arizona and former Arizona Air National Guard member, Barry Goldwater. The Arizona Air National Guard’s 161st Air Refueling Wing is based there.
They commissioned the production of their custom challenge coin to us. They wanted a challenge coin that is up-to-date and modern-looking, even if it still is showing the original insignias.
So, we designed this coin to be more of a clean-looking one, with a minimum of classical patterns such as rope or leaves to be left out of the design. Instead, we machined a clean cut without patterns for the edge of the coin and used glossy paint without any textures for the colors. We’re happy with how ‘bright’ this challenge coin turned out to be.
