US Navy - The Lone Sailor - 3 inch

 

With eyes on the horizon, hope for his nation, and his the sea in his heart, the lone sailor statue sculpted by Stanley Bleifeld for the Navy Memorial represents every sailor who has served – or will serve -- this nation with the resolve and proficiency displayed by all American sailors since 1775.

The Lone Sailor medallion identifies you as a brother of the seas, one who shares the duties and accomplishments of every Navy hand from before the nation’s founding. Defending our shores boldly and with honor, showing the colors in hundreds of ports, battling borders and bombers, swabbing decks, manning the torpedoes, and more – these are common to all sailors, assembled from every corner of the nation in defense of liberty.

Each three-inch medallion arrives with a museum-quality cherry wood presentation box that contains a velvet-lined medal slot. Simply slide the medal forward and tilt up to be rewarded with an eye-catching display for any sailor’s desk, bookshelf, or other place of honor. Give this medallion as a gift to a sailor you know who has taken to sea at some time in his life to protect those at home. Display it proudly if you have been on a seagoing vessel far from home as one of America’s stalwart protectors.

The original sculpture and model for the coin stands at the Navy Memorial in Washington, DC, but replicas have been installed in Baton Rouge, LA; Bremerton, WA; Burlington, VT; Dallas, TX; Fort Lauderdale, FL; Recruit Training Command Great Lakes, IL; Long Beach, CA; Norfolk, VA; North Charleston, SC; San Francisco, CA; Waterloo, IA; and West Haven, CT. 

Minted in the USA from special deep-relief coining dies; struck from solid bronze; and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, the obverse features Bleifeld’s senior second class petty officer and his duffel. The reverse features the petty officer from behind, capturing the horizon before him – with room for an engraved message. Either side makes for a compelling display.
