U.S. Public Health Service Coin

The United States Public Health Service is a collection of agencies of the Department of Health and Human Services concerned with public health, containing nine out of the department’s twelve operating divisions. Their medical, health, and engineering professionals fight disease, conduct research, and care for patients in underserved communities across the nation and throughout the world.

The USPHS originated in the system of marine hospitals that originated in 1798. In 1871 these were consolidated into the Marine Hospital Service, and shortly afterwards the position of Surgeon General and the PHSCC were established. As the system’s scope grew to include quarantine authority and research, it was renamed the Public Health Service in 1912.

They asked us to craft them a beautiful and elegant custom challenge coin. The design was classic and quite straightforward, with the shape of a round coin, with some relief of images and inscription etched on the field of the coin.

The challenging part was designing the encircling letterings of the officers’ names, which were engraved to the back side of the coin. We had to make sure everything was balanced out so the names were still readable but aesthetically placed. We used a dark brass color for the finish of the coin and applied some glossy paints on the USPHS logo and the American flag.
