This Maritime Enforcement Specialist challenge coin is the ideal gift for a recent graduate or active or retired specialist in the United States Coast Guard. This coin salutes the courage and commitment of all Maritime Enforcement Specialists as they perform their law enforcement duties throughout the waters of America’s shores and beyond.
Formerly the Port Security Specialist rating, the Maritime Enforcement Specialist rating supports the goal of making the U.S. Coast Guard more responsive to maritime threats in the post Sep-11 era. These talented individuals are charged with law enforcement duties, anti-terrorism force protection, port security and safety, and providing training in these fields at the unit level and at training centers. The vigilance and courage of these maritime guardians make them crucial members of America’s domestic defense.
The obverse of the coin features an outer badge that is the insignia for the Maritime Enforcement Specialist rating. The interior symbol is the Coast Guard shield. The reverse depicts a team of intrepid Coast Guard sailors braving rough surf as they approach a lighthouse, and features a space for engraving.
Struck in a nickel alloy and gently brushed with an antique finish, this coin is accented with crisp enamel highlights.
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
This is a surplus NWTM item.
