100th Anniversary Naval Aviation Challenge Coin

$ 10.99 $ 12.00

Made up of the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, the US Naval Aviation Program has been a constant source of innovation, service and sacrifice, being a part of world wars, space exploration, humanitarian aid and homeland defense. From the first shipboard landing in 1911 to combating the Japanese during the Battle of the Coral Sea in 1942 to Operation Enduring Freedom in the present-day, the US Naval Aviation Program continues its patriotic duty.

John Glenn, the first American to orbit the Earth in a spacecraft and Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, were both Naval Aviators and reflected the program’s dedication to American-born innovation in their achievements.

Honor and celebrate this historic, century-long military milestone with a detailed 1 3/4 inch challenge coin minted in a tough brass alloy with a bronze antique finish. The obverse features the official Naval Aviator Insignia with the 1911 to 2011 dates in high relief, with the words “Celebrating a Century of Innovation” wrapped across the top.

The reverse illustrates the progress of the last century with one of the first Naval Aviator Pilots in period-style uniform with a 1911-era Hydroplane contrasted by a contemporary F/A 18 Hornet, with the aviator mantra of “Fight to Fly, Fly to Fight, Fight to Win.”
