USS Topeka (SSN 754) Coin
USS Topeka (SSN 754) was commissioned on October 21, 1989, with Commander Timothy M. Richert as her first Commanding Officer. USS Topeka is the fourth ship of the “improved” Los Angeles Class, the Navy’s newest and world’s best nuclear-powered attack submarines. These ships are the most advanced undersea vessels of their type in the world.
An SSN is a nuclear-powered general-purpose attack submarine. This 360-foot, 6900-ton ship is well equipped to accomplish these tasks. Faster than her predecessors and equipped with a highly accurate sonar and weapon control system, the ship can be armed with sophisticated Mark 48 and ADCAP torpedoes, as well as Harpoon land/anti-ship missiles. Topeka can also launch multipurpose Tomahawk cruise missiles from vertical tubes located in the bow or from her torpedo tubes.
Commanding Officer James E. Fulks relieved Cmdr. Richard D. Salazar, II as CO of the Topeka during a change-of-command ceremony at the USS Parche Memorial on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in 2021. And we build a custom challenge coin to commemorate the event.
The challenge coin is a gorgeous one, with all of the engravings and sculpted graphics applied to both sides. The brass-colored metal goes beautifully with the black paint on one side, and with the colored submarine graphic on the other side.
