Description

The AH-1 was the backbone of the United States Army’s attack helicopter fleet for more than two decades, and the AH-1 twin engine versions remain the primary attack helicopter for the United States Marine Corps. AH-1 Cobras were first used by the Army during the Tet offensive in 1968 and through the end of the Vietnam War.

Huey Cobras provided fire support for ground forces, escorted transport helicopters and provided aerial rocket artillery. They also formed “hunter killer” teams, working in tandem with OH-6A scout helicopters. One OH-6 would fly low and slow to detect enemy forces. If the OH-6 drew fire, the Cobra could strike at the enemy positions.

Matching its namesake, the AH-1 Vietnam coin is bold and impressive, capturing the AH-1 Cobra as a deadly gunship inflicting mayhem and destruction on the Viet Cong forces. It is a tribute to the bravery and dedication of the warriors who served with pride to preserve freedom and to engage the enemy forces in combat.

This coin displays the AH-1 Cobra Helicopter in incredible detail. The obverse of coin features front, side, and top profiles of the AH-1 in the background, while an AH-1 captured in flight occupies the foreground. The reverse, depicting a scene from the Vietnam countryside and the Vietnam War Service Ribbon, is engravable, suitable for names, duty dates, or special remembrances.

Minted in deep relief using a special “splash minting” process, this coin is struck in a brass alloy and finished in antique bronze.

Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.

This is a surplus NWTMint item. Packaging may vary.
