USS New Mexico (SSN-779)

USS New Mexico (SSN-779), a Virginia-class submarine, will be the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for the 47th state. Built by Northrop Grumman Newport News in Newport News, Virginia, she is the Navy's sixth Virginia class submarine, has one million parts and 140 shipboard systems, and will cost $2.7 billion and require 14 million man hours to assemble. Construction began in January 2004 at the Electric Boat Corporation, Groton, Connecticut and Quonset Point, Rhode Island facilities, for the construction of the straight sections. The individual components will be shipped to Newport News for final assembly. Her keel was laid down on Saturday, April 12, 2008. On May 18, 2008 the final hull welds were completed. Christening is scheduled for January 2009, and delivery in August 2009.

This coin salutes the USS New Mexico and all of her future crew. This uniquely shaped coin is struck in a brass alloy and is given an antique finish, followed by the precision application of enamel in the colors of the ship's crest. The reverse has a special plate designed for the engraving of a name and rank or personal message. This coin comes packaged in a polybag with a detailed header card.
