Operation Odyssey Dawn is the code name assigned by the U.S. Military for the international military operation against longtime Libyan dictator Colonel Muammar Khaddafi.
The goal of the international coalition is to impose a no-fly zone over Libya to deter forces loyal to Goddafi that have been indiscriminately targeting the civilian population. As the tip of the spear, United States pilots and Tomahawk cruise missiles were instrumental in grounding the Libyan Air Forces and neutralizing their anti-aircraft defense systems.
Be the first to own this unique antique bronze finish challenge coin and support the men and women of the coalition to oust the Libyan dictator Qhadaffi.
The obverse of this enameled coin features the official seal of Operation Odyssey Dawn, with the country of Libya featured prominently in the center. The reverse features an image of the quacked-out Colonel Ghadaffy in all his crazed glory. Not since the days of Baghdad Bob have we seen a more delusional figure. Hey, Kdaffy- DUCK!
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
