Charged with the Navy’s weather forecasting, Aerographer’s Mates play a vital role supporting the modern U.S. Navy.
Aerographer’s Mates are the U.S. Navy’s weather forecasters. They are trained in meteorology and the use of aerological instruments that monitor air pressure, temperature, humidity, wind speed, and direction. They prepare weather maps and forecasts and can analyze atmospheric conditions to determine the best flight levels for aircraft. An AG can measure wind and air density to aid the accuracy of anti-aircraft firing, shore bombardment and delivery of weapons by aircraft.
This coin salutes the dedication of all Aerographer’s Mates, whose efficiency propels the U.S. Navy forward.
Minted on the obverse against a blue enameled backdrop is the specialty insignia of the U.S. Navy Aerographer’s Mate. The reverse contains a stylized anchor design, which incorporates a full color rendering of the U.S. Navy’s official emblem.
Struck in a cuper nickel alloy, this coin contains an antique finish.
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
