Chiefs are the backbone of the world’s most powerful maritime force. Renowned for their exceptional technical abilities and razor-sharp instincts, their proven leadership ability sets the tone and trains the Navy’s sailors.
Deck plate leadership is in-your-face and by-your-side management from the center of the job that develops seamen into petty officers and raw recruits into everyday heroes. Chiefs know the mission and know their sailors. Thanks to deck plate leadership, the U.S. Navy has safe-guarded America’s freedom and secured America’s interests throughout the world for more than 200 years.
This coin salutes the outstanding achievement and tireless dedication of all Navy Chiefs, who have seized the phrase “deck plate leadership” and serve the U.S. Navy with distinction.
Minted in a nickel alloy and coated with an antique finish, this coin’s obverse is hand enameled.
Each coin measures 2 inches (50mm) in diameter.
