USS Carl Vinson Coin
USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) is the United States Navy’s third Nimitz-class supercarrier, famous for launching the first airstrikes in the Global War on Terrorism, after being underway during the September 11th terrorist attacks. USS Carl Vinson was also one of the aircraft carriers where the jets in the movie ‘Top Gun’ are landing and taking off in the sunset.
The third of 10 Nimitz-class aircraft carriers active in the fleet, Vinson was commissioned in Newport News, Va. on March 13, 1982, after over seven years of construction. The keel was laid at Newport News Shipbuilding on 11 October 1975, and on 15 March 1980, the ship was launched. Congressman Carl Vinson became the first person in the history of the United States Navy to witness a ship’s launching in his honor.
This custom challenge coin that we fabricated for CVN-70 is one of the most artistic and exceptional coins we have ever done. It has the shape of a combination of an octopus, an eagle, and the letter V. They requested us to put some inscriptions and insignias on the back side of the coin.
We made the base design digitally and made some mock-ups so our client could see some options before we sent it to our production machine. This coin is one of the examples of how the quality of our work is only limited by your imagination.
