Description

The Bell OH-58 Kiowa is a single-engine, single-rotor helicopter used for a variety of missions, most ideally suited for observation, surveillance, utility and direct fire support. The OH-58 was manufactured specifically for the United States Army, based on the design of the 206A JetRanger helicopter. The OH-58 has been in constant use by the US Army since its initial delivery in 1969. Able to carry two-thirds of its weight, it is remarkably powerful and fast.

Following the US Army’s naming convention for helicopters, the OH-58 was designated “Kiowa” in honor of the Kiowa Native American tribe of Oklahoma. Today’s version, the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior, has seen action in combat zones such as Iraq and Afghanistan. With its crew of two, the Kiowa Warrior flies at 150 mph and wields AGM-114 Hellfire anti-tank missiles, Hydra 70 rockets, AIM-92 Stinger missiles, and M296 50-caliber machine guns.

Many have flown the Kiowa or fought alongside this versatile helicopter. If that’s you, the Kiowa OH-58 challenge coin will make a great keepsake. If it’s someone you know, then this challenge coin will make a superb tribute.

The obverse of this challenge coin features front, side, and top profiles of the Kiowa OH-58 in the background, while a Kiowa OH-58 in flight commands the foreground. The reverse features a special place for an engraved message, perfect for those who served with the Kiowa OH-58.

Minted in deep relief using a special “splash minting” process, this coin is struck in a brass alloy and finished in antique bronze.

Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.

This is a surplus NWTMint item. Packaging may vary.
