USS Henry M Jackson Coin
USS Henry M. Jackson (SSBN 730) is the fifth submarine of the Ohio class of ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs), Henry M. Jackson originally was to have been called Rhode Island, but was named in honor of the late U.S. Sen. Henry M. Jackson (1912-1983). As a result, it is the only Ohio-class submarine not named after a state.
USS Henry M. Jackson was launched on 15 October 1983, sponsored by Senator Jackson’s daughter, Ms. Anna Marie Jackson, and commissioned on 6 October 1984, with Captain R. Tindal in command of the Blue Crew and Captain M. A. Farmer in command of the Gold Crew.
This is also one of the unique and uncommon custom challenge coins that we have ever produced. The design is basically a normal challenge coin, but with an octopus, which in the US Navy usually symbolizes submarines, creeping over it. We had to make sure that this concept was executed well by making the octopus look alive.
The octopus was sculpted nicely, holding Pollux and Castor, the fishes on the US Navy logo. It was colored in gold, so it will be shown on the silver-colored coin. And on the back side, we put an engraving of a compass, with the inscription of “HMJ” and “730” around it.
