Navy 1st Class Petty Officer Coin
First Class Petty Officer or PO1 is the third of the Navy’s Petty Officer grades and serves as a non-commissioned officer. It is the sixth enlisted rate in the United States Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard, ranking just above petty officer second class and directly below chief petty officer.
A Petty Officer First Class serves both as a leader and as a technical expert, and all Petty Officers have a specified rating or job. They are often chosen to serve as the Leading Petty Officer (LPO) of a division, and the leadership experience demonstrated through this position is often used to choose sailors for promotion to Chief Petty Officer. Petty Officer First Class is the 6th rank in the United States Navy, ranking above Petty Officer Second Class and directly below Chief Petty Officer.
This custom challenge coin was ordered from us as a commemorative coin for the Leadership Symposium event held in Seattle for the First Class Petty Officers. They asked for something that resembles a compass, with a lot of small ornaments and details that are very Navy oriented.
As you can see in the photos, we use blue paint as the base color of the coin, with a white circle as an accent. And with the only US Flag painted in colors, everything else was left unpainted and finished with matte brass color.
