The USS Shasta (AE-33) proudly served the United States Navy by bringing needed supplies and ammunition to our fighting forces around the globe. As a Kilauea-class replenishment ammunition ship, she provided underway and vertical replenishment in support of forward deployed aircraft carrier battle groups. The U.S. Navy put the USS Shasta out of service on 29 April 2011 in Pearl Harbor, HI.
Minted from cupronickel, and finished with an antique patina, this coin pays tribute to the USS Shasta and salutes the exceptional service of her crew. The obverse contains a scene of the vessel sailing across the Pacific. The reverse displays the shield and emblem of the USS Shasta, imbued with bold colored enamel.
Each coin measures 1.75 inches (44mm) in diameter.
