U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Coin - MerlinGold
Chief Petty Officers are the backbone of the U.S. Navy. As experienced and accomplished leaders, they play a vital role in their ship's command, serving as technical experts and important role models.
Those elevated to the rank of Chief Petty Officer share in the Navy's time-honored tradition of recognizing and advancing those who serve with distinction. More than a mere promotion, the ascent to Chief Petty Officer is a milestone in the career of any Navy sailor.
This commemorative coin honors those few who are chosen to serve as Chief Petty Officers in the United States Navy. Their dedication and commitment have earned them a distinguished place in the world's most powerful maritime force.
Featured on the obverse, against the backdrop of an American Flag, are three anchors emblazoned with the letters "USN." The reverse features the seal of the United States Navy.
Minted in MerlinGold, a proprietary brass alloy that simulates the look and feel of gold, this proof-like coin exhibits a remarkably radiant finish. Each piece comes encased in a durable Lucite capsule and is accompanied by a detailed header card, which captures the spirit of the U.S. Navy.
