Naval Historical Foundation War of 1812 Bicentennial Lapel Pin 

Sailors and history buffs will appreciate this lapel pin honoring the way America’s young navy came of age during the War of 1812, winning a series of stunningly decisive battles against Great Britain on the high seas, the Great Lakes, and the American frontier.

The USS Constitution sails fearlessly on the coin’s obverse as the iconic U.S. Navy warship of the conflict. In her battle with HMS Guerriere, the enemy’s cannonballs were seen to bounce off the Constitution’s hull, causing one of her sailors to shout, “Huzzah! Her sides are made of iron!” Undefeated in battle, “Old Ironsides”  welcomes visitors in Boston Harbor and remains the US Navy's oldest commissioned warship afloat.

Celebrating more than two hundred years of keeping the seas free, this lapel pin is struck from solid bronze, hand-finished with an antique patina, and imbued with brilliant enamel. Minted for the Naval Historical Foundation, which has helped preserve and commemorate naval history for nearly 90 years, all Americans can take pride in wearing this tribute to the Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen who sail in harm’s way in America’s defense.
