The United States Space Force (USSF) is the space service branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, one of the eight U.S. uniformed services, and the world’s first and currently only independent space force. Along with its sister-branch, the U.S. Air Force, the Space Force is part of the Department of the Air Force, one of the three civilian-led military departments within the Department of Defense. The United States Space Force Act codified the Space Force as organized, trained, and equipped to “provide freedom of operation for the United States in, from, and to space” and “provide prompt and sustained space operations,” with its stated duties enumerated as to “protect the interests of the United States in space, deter aggression in, from, and to space, and conduct space operations.”
This coin honors the personnel of America’s newest uniformed branch of service, featuring the triangular USSF emblem suspended in front of a galactic backdrop while also highlighting the Earth and Moon – the highly detailed metallic galaxy is coated with transparent enamel to provide an exceptionally eye-catching effect. The reverse features an engravable area surrounded by the USFF’s ethos.
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inches, (44mm) in diameter.
