Maritime Weapons School Coin
United States Navy Maritime Weapons School is a training program that teaches maritime combat maneuvering tactics and techniques to selected naval officers, who return to their operating units as surrogate instructors. The unit’s purpose is to train navy crews at the graduate level in all aspects of weapons systems including tactics, techniques, procedures, and doctrine.
We were given an order from the US Navy to build a custom challenge coin for the USN Maritime Weapons School’s Lieutenant Commander (LCDR). LCDR is a senior officer rank in the United States Navy, the United States Coast Guard, the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Officer Corps (NOAA Corps).
They wanted a custom coin with a contemporary design that and also be used as a bottle opener. The basic concept for the design was pretty simple, which is to have one side colored in black, and the other side colored like the Star Spangled Banner. Other than those, the elements that were requested to be put on the coin were the insignia of the US Navy, the logo of the Maritime Weapons School, and the inscription of the LCDR’s name.
This unsophisticated design concept turned out to work very well for this coin. The well-machined letterings & graphics, and glossy colors we applied to the coin material, make this handsome coin shine.
