The obverse depicts red eyes on a stark black background, a symbol of the shadowy nature and constant vigilance inherent in military special projects. When it comes to the highest levels of intelligence and advanced technology, no one holds a candle to Special Projects. From specialized satellites to advanced stealth fighters, special projects are tasked with ensuring national security using the very latest technology. There is no length they won’t go to keep this country safe.
The reverse features a mushroom, which only grows in the darkness, border by the phrase “SEMPER EN OBSCURUS” meaning “Always in the dark,” a perfect description of every special project. These exceptional men and women lay their lives on the line with no regard for personal reward, the very nature of their work hidden in the dark.
This stone-polished coin has a cloisonné enamel and covert-black nickel finish. This coin celebrates America’s proud clandestine operations heritage and the courageous men and women who make these ULTRA TOP SECRET projects possible.
