Put a coin like this in the hands of any member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) of the United States and you’ll give a gift that captures camaraderie, pride, and patriotism. Own or give this VFW coin as a tribute to the dedicated service of those who put themselves in harm’s way for the greater good of the United States of America.
The VFW is the largest organization of combat veterans in America, with over 1.5 million members. Since 1899, the VFW has been promoting the service of veterans, national security, and a strong national defense. Fighting for the rights of those who fight for our freedom, the organization’s achievements include helping establish the Veterans Administration, creating the GI Bill, and fighting for compensation for veterans exposed to deadly chemicals during combat.
This challenge coin is minted in MerlinGold® with an antique finish, using a special “splash-minting” dies for exceptionally deep relief and beautiful detail. The reverse features the five seals of the US military – US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, US Marine Corps, and US Coast Guard – surrounding the seal of the Department of Defense, making this challenge coin suitable for any and all veterans and emphasizing how all have fought for America’s freedom.
Northwest Territorial Mint’s licensed VFW challenge coins have been created exclusively for members of the VFW. Many VFW posts have minted their own unique challenge coins.
