The Air Medal Coin
Air Medal Coin
This high relief, splash-minted coin exhibits the precision detail characteristic of such minting technique. Die struck out of thicker blanks, this coin will have a substantive feel to it as well. The coin is given an antique finish then enameled and baked for a beautiful and durable result. The reverse has space available for engraving. The coin comes packaged in a polybag with a header card.
The Air Medal is awarded to any person who, while serving in any capacity in or with the Armed Forces of the United States, shall have distinguished himself/herself by meritorious achievement while participating in aerial flight.
It acknowledges those personnel on current crewmember or non-crewmember flying status that requires them to participate in aerial flight on a regular and frequent basis in the performance of their primary duties.
Presented by all branches of the Armed Forces of the United States, the Air Medal was established by order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1942 and designed by Walker K. Hancock.
This coin commemorates the brave and steadfast service of America’s men and women who take to the skies in defense of liberty.
