The United States Coast Guard Station Miami Beach coin commemorates the dedicated crews who keep vigilant watch over the greater-Biscayne Bay area, braving arduous sea and weather conditions while conducting illegal drug and migrant interdictions on the high seas. A modern fleet of seven fast-response cutters provide marine traffic law enforcement while performing more than 300 Search and Rescue missions each year.
Enameled in bright colors to match Miami Beach’s subtropical climate, this USCG Station Miami Beach coin features the three types of craft used by the Station: 41-foot Utility Boat, 33-foot Special Purpose boat used for law enforcement, and the 25-foot Fast-response craft. The coin reads “Elite Mission—Elite Team.” The reverse features the Coast Guard crest on a sea-green background.
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
