USS Dewey Challenge Coin
The Dewey (DDG 105) is the 55th Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer in the United States Navy and is named after Admiral George Dewey, hero of the Battle of Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War. She was authorized on September 13, 2002, and is scheduled to be built by Northrop Grumman Ship Systems. The keel was laid on July 12, 2006, at the company’s Ingalls shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss.
In April 2013, Dewey was outfitted with a Laser Weapon System (LaWS). This is an experimental weapon that can be used to disable small boats and drones. USS Dewey tested it for the first time, off the coast of southern California. It successfully shot down surveillance drones and fast boats in its first round of sea trials aboard a surface combatant. LaWS can be directed onto targets from the radar track obtained from a MK 15 Phalanx Close-In Weapon system or other targeting sources.
We built them one exceptional custom challenge coin. It is shaped like a key and also functions as a bottle opener. The key-shaped challenge coin was decorated with some engraved military symbols and insignias. On one side it was finished in gold, and on the back side with silver.
