Every person to serve on “Island Class” USCG Cutter Staten Island over its illustrious career will carry this coin with pride, knowing that they contributed to her list of accomplishments: lives and property saved, numerous contraband seizures, and a variety of fisheries and coastal enforcement actions.
The USCG Cutter Staten Island was built primarily as a Law Enforcement vessel, yet performs multi-mission duties, ranging from Search and Rescue, to National Defense, to Marine Environmental Protection. Staten Island is a high-speed heavy-weather craft, equipped with state-of-the-art machinery and electronics, capable of speeds in excess of 26 knots.
The USCG Cutter Staten Island coin honors and salutes both those who accepted the challenges of Service, and the “Island Class” Cutter that so ably combines tradition with the latest in modern technology. Minted with a special alloy and finished in antique bronze, the obverse of the coin recalls the USCGC Staten Island logo, accented with bright red and blue enamels. The reverse is a bold representation of the US Coast Guard crest.
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
