Navy Chief Coins
One of the greatest parts of making challenge coins are the hidden details sometimes contained creatively within them. Navy Chief coins are especially loaded with symbolism and meaning, and this coin highlights that in several ways and, overall, is just a high quality, beautifully made coin.
First off, the plating choice of gold mixes incredibly well with the outer ring blue, giving a very pleasing presentation to anyone who looks at these particular Navy Chief coins. This coins were specifically for an important event honoring several sailors and their meritorious promotion to Chief Petty Officers.
Four emblems representing the parts of the Navy these four sailors came from are in a diamond pattern on the front around the anchor–an essential part to all Navy Chief coins. A golden chain–an important symbol of Chief Petty Officers–links the four emblems, and the date and three rating badges of the sailors, symbolizing their job positions in the Navy, sit between the four emblems. A hidden CNO in the 1 in 31–representing the 31st CNO at the time–and MCPON in the 1 in 13–representing the 13th MCPON at the time–are hidden in the front. On the back, the sailors’ names ring the outside, along with the respective parts of the Navy each awardee was part of–written in small, hard to see on the actual coin font on the compass which centers the whole backside of the coin.
These Navy Chief coins turned out fantastic-looking, remaining extremely professional and simultaneously containing a great deal of hidden symbolism.
