Saint Michael - USCG Bronze Antique Coin
Skillfully defending the homeland against America's enemies for over 200 years, the U.S. Coast Guard operates as the nation's longest-serving maritime law enforcement and coastal defense force.
Courageously battling the elements to provide vital protection in all kinds of weather, the Coast Guard's elite corps of master sailors and technicians keep a watchful eye on America's strategic assets at all times, hunting down those who seek to undermine the American way of life and dutifully bringing them to justice.
The dedicated men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard are encouraged in their mission by the powerful example of St. Michael, the Patron Saint of Law Enforcement, who commanded the army of God against the renegade Lucifer.
This coin honors the proven commitment of all Coast Guard Sailors, past and present, whose constant vigilance and tireless devotion to duty has helped to safeguard America's lasting legacy of freedom. The obverse depicts St. Michael standing triumphantly over a defeated Lucifer. The reverse bears the Coast Guard seal.
Minted in MerlinGold,® a proprietary brass alloy that simulates the look and feel of gold, this coin contains an antique bronze finish. Each coin comes packaged with a header card that describes the Coast Guard's mission and history.
