Nellis Air Force Base—“Home of the Fighter Pilot”—is a member of the United States Air Force’s Air Combat Command. It is the home to the largest and most demanding advanced air combat training in the world. More than 40,000 sorties a year are flown from this southern Nevada facility, including every type of aircraft in the Air Force inventory.

The signature presence at Nellis is the United States Air Force Thunderbirds. They are the air demonstration squadron of the U.S. Air Force, not only touring the United States but much of the world, performing aerobatic formation and solo flying in specially-marked jet aircraft. The current team is made up of 12 Officers and more than 120 Enlisted Air Force members, coming together from over 30 career fields to make the ‘Thunderbird excitement’ happen.

The Home of the Thunderbirds, Nellis AFB coin salutes the extreme skill of Thunderbird pilots who compound the inherent danger of flying high performance jets in extreme situations by flying in extremely close formation. The obverse of this challenge coin is a brilliant rendering of the Thunderbird insignia, finished in rich enamels. It reads “Home of the Thunderbirds—Nellis AFB, NV.” The reverse features the classic Air Force Wings insignia in blue over a gray background.
