Operation Freedom’s Sentinel Coin
In continuation of the War in Afghanistan as part of the larger Global War on Terrorism, to all missions succeeding the Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), the U.S. government used Operation Freedom’s Sentinel (OFS) as the official name. Operation Freedom’s Sentinel is part of the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission.
OFS had two components: counterterrorism and working with allies as part of Resolute Support. While the bulk of the new mission was under the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission (RS), “a separate ‘non-NATO’ contingent of U.S. forces will participate in force protection, logistical support, and counterterrorism activities. Operation Freedom Sentinel was expected to formally end on August 31, 2021, but concluded with the final withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan on August 30.
This custom challenge coin was ordered by the Task Force Justice 19 CID which was an element of the OFS. They wanted a unique challenge coin that could memorialize their duty in Afghanistan, so they asked us to make the coin to be shaped like the country’s map. Apart from that, they wanted us to have their insignias and mottos to be imprinted on both sides.
The result was a very distinctive and representative challenge coin. Using a shiny silver-colored metal as the base, the insignias and the letterings engraved on the surfaces were nicely machined and colored.
