UH-72 Lakota Engravable Challenge Coin

The UH-72 Lakota is a twin-engine helicopter with a single, four-bladed main rotor. In October 2006, the American Eurocopter company was awarded a contract to produce 345 of these helicopters to replace the UH-1H and OH-58A/C helicopters in the Army and Army National Guard fleets.

The first of these helicopters was delivered to the United States Army in December of 2006. The US Army estimated that delivery of the planned 345 aircraft would continue until 2017.

Taking its name from the Native American Lakota tribe, known as fierce defenders of their homeland, as well as for their mobility, firepower, and endurance, the UH-72 is designed to take on a variety of missions, ranging from general support and medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) to personnel recovery and counter-narcotics operations. 

The UH-72 Lakota challenge coin will fit right into the challenge coin collection of helicopter enthusiasts and Army pilots alike. This challenge coin salutes all the service men and women who provide support to the warriors who are charged with preserving peace and freedom.

This UH-72 Lakota challenge coin is minted in solid bronze with an antique finish using special deep-relief dies for exceptional quality and detail. The obverse of this challenge coin features front, side, and top profiles of the UH-72 Lakota in the background, while a UH-72 Lakota dominates the foreground. The reverse of this coin carries a special place for an engraved message, perfect for those who serve with the UH-72 or have been associated with the project.
