USS Saratoga Challenge Coin
USS Saratoga CVA-60 (later CV-60) was named for the Battle of Saratoga, which was a decisive American victory resulting in the surrender of an entire British army of 9,000 men invading New York from Canada during the American Revolutionary War.
USS Saratoga was the second of four Forrestal-class supercarriers built for the United States Navy in the 1950s. Ordered as a “Large Aircraft Carrier”, hull number CVB-60, and reclassified as an “Attack Aircraft Carrier” (CVA-60). Commissioned in 1956, she spent most of her career in the Mediterranean but also participated during the Vietnam War, receiving one battle star for her service.
Saratoga was decommissioned in 1994 and was stored at Naval Station Newport in Newport, Rhode Island. To commemorate the event, the US Navy ordered a custom challenge coin from us. They wanted something special, a classic US Navy challenge coin, with a twist. They wanted to add a sculpture of an anchor and its chain added to the usual round shape of a coin.
