Leading the fight against the world’s most dangerous and destructive regimes for well over 200 years, the U.S. Navy has carried the torch of freedom and justice to millions around the globe.
With constant vigilance and uncompromising integrity, the skilled Sailors of America’s Navy continue to confront and conquer those who seek to rule through tyranny and oppression.
As they carry out their courageous mission, the men and women of the U.S. Navy are inspired by the actions of St. Michael, the Archangel, who defeated the renegade angel Lucifer and cast him out of Heaven.
This coin salutes the dedication and sacrifice of all those who serve with pride in the U.S. Navy. The obverse features the figure of St. Michael standing triumphantly over Lucifer and honors St. Michael’s role as the Patron Saint of Law Enforcement. The reverse depicts an emblem of the US Navy, featuring an eagle grasping an anchor in its talons, encircled by chains and rope, symbolic of naval traditions dating back to the nation’s first ships.
Minted in a brass alloy, this coin contains an antique bronze finish.
Each coin measures 1 1/2 inch (39mm) in diameter.
