Minted from nickel alloy, using special deep-relief coining dies, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this medallion is dedicated to the former and current Coast Guard and Civilian personnel who have proudly served this great Station in its important role to protect this nation’s freedom. The obverse, imbued with bold colored enamel, depicts one of the station’s small vessels on patrol in front of an outline of a buffalo imprinted with an American flag. The reverse displays the seal of the US Coast Guard.

Struck in a brass alloy and gently brushed with an antique bronze finish, this coin is imbued with richly-colored enamel on both sides.
