U.S. Army Ordnance Corps Coin
Officially established in 1812, the U.S. Army Ordnance Corps has developed and supplied superior firepower for America's land-based fighting forces for more than two-hundred years.
The modern Ordnance Corps supports the development, production, acquisition, and maintenance of weapons systems and munitions and provides critical Explosive Ordnance Disposal during peace and war. Committed to developing the most technologically advanced weaponry for the world's most powerful Army, the Ordnance Corps has served as a vital combat support branch in virtually every American conflict since the Revolutionary War.
This coin salutes the skill and dedication of all the members of the Army's Ordnance Corps, whose skillful service ensures America's continued military superiority. The obverse replicates the "shell and flame" design of the Ordnance Corps' Branch Plaque. The reverse contains the official seal of the U.S. Army.
Minted in a brass alloy and finished in antique bronze, this coin is imbued with enamel on both sides. Each coin comes packaged with a detailed header card that describes the mission and history of the U.S. Army.
