Serving as the headquarters for the United States Department of Defense, The Pentagon, is the largest office building in the world, with more than six million total square feet of space, including corridors that stretch 17.5 miles. Completed in 1943, The Pentagon has been the logistical hub for all U.S. Military operations for more than five decades. This round-shaped coin commemorates The Pentagon’s central role in protecting the American people and defending America’s interests throughout the world. Even when not in uniform, this symbol of Navy pride can be carried on your person.
The obverse features a detailed rendering of the Pentagon set against black enamel. 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. This coin also makes a great gift for family members who want to display the shared pride in their sailors.
Minted in a brass alloy and coated with an antique finish, this coin is imbued with richly colored enamel accents on both sides.
Each coin measures 1.75 inches (44mm) in diameter.
