Red Hill Challenge Coin
The Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility supports military operations in the Pacific. Buried under 100 feet of volcanic rock, the Red Hill Underground Fuel Storage Facility, a complex of 20 fuel tanks, was innovatively designed and constructed.
Conceived in the early years of World War II as a plan to bury four fuel containers horizontally in a hillside at the U.S. Navy facility at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, the Red Hill Underground Fuel Storage Facility ultimately encompassed the design and construction of 20 vertical storage tanks. The facility may have been a wartime project, but it kept operating long after the war ended and remains in active use today, more than 70 years after it was completed.
When we were given the order to produce a custom coin challenge for the facility by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), they requested an unusual design that the coin should be shaped rectangular so it looked more like a plaque than a normal coin. They also requested the field of the coin to be inscribed with some words to honor the people who were involved in the construction of the facility.
The coin was colored in bronze and black paint. The black was used for the background and all the letters were painted in brass color. The only graphical element that we applied to the coin was the logo of the ASCE, colored to give a nice accent to the overall look.
