The Choctaw has performed a variety missions for both military and civilian purposes. Perhaps most famous for its role in Vietnam prior to adoption of  the UH-1 “Huey,” the H-34 has participated in combat operations all over the world, including Algeria, the Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua. On the civilian side, the H-34 proved quite versatile in saving flood victims, fire-fighting, astronaut recovery and carrying presidents. The H-34 was also license-built in England where it was known as the Westland Wessex, seeing active military service until as recently as 2003.

This bronze coin with antique finish was struck using special "splash" dies, which give the H-34 Choctaw challenge coin exceptional quality and detail. The obverse of H-34 coin features front, side, and top profiles of the H-34 in the background, while an H-34 captured in flight occupies the foreground. The reverse features a United States Marine Corps seal. Proudly minted in the United States.
