The bold fighting spirit of America’s military men and women is captured in the classic slogan: “Don’t Tread on Me.” This enduring motto, which traces its origins to America’s Revolutionary War, still serves as an emblem of the strength of the world’s most powerful military force.
This coin honors the brave men and women of America’s Air Force, who risk their lives to secure our freedom. The obverse replicates the design of the original ensign displayed by American forces in the Revolutionary War. The reverse bears the official U.S. Air Force seal. The wing and star emblem of the new Air Force symbol is based on the familiar World War II “Hap” Arnold wings and represents the service’s heritage. The symbol’s modern design represents the Air Force’s present and future leading edge capabilities defending the United States.
Minted in a brass alloy, this coin is imbued on both sides with brightly colored enamel.
