VFW - No One Does More for Veterans Challenge Coin
For the proud members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, this coin not only memorializes years spent in service to country, but is a tangible connection to all who have shared the same sacrifice. The largest American organization of combat veterans with 1.5 million members, the VFW has promoted the values of military service, national defense, and patriotism for more than a century.
The obverse features an exceptionally detailed rendering of the VFW Cross of Malta insignia, conveying at a glance the organization’s foundation in the virtues of courage and honor. Since it was founded in 1899, the VFW has been a stalwart defender of the hard-won benefits of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines—heroes all—who have put themselves in harm’s way to protect America’s freedom. VFW achievements include establishing the Veterans Administration and creating the GI Bill. And today, it is helping to secure the future of a whole new generation of warriors. That enduring mission of service, captured in the motto “No One Does More for Veterans” is indelibly stamped on the front of this coin, both a reminder of past accomplishments and of the work that still needs to be done.
Minted in the USA from special deep-relief coining dies; struck from solid bronze; and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, the VFW No One Does More for Veterans challenge coin pays tribute to this exceptional organization working on behalf of the men and women who have defended America on foreign sea and soil at great personal sacrifice. Both sides of this coin are accented in bold enamel color, highlighting the significance of the symbols it bears. The reverse displays the official logos of the five branches of the U.S. military surrounding the logo of the Department of Defense, making this challenge coin suitable for any and all veterans.
