USCGC Northland (WMEC-904)

The USCGC Northland (WMEC-904) plays a critical part in protecting our borders and extending American interests abroad. A medium endurance cutter, she is well equipped to bring an immediate and significant measure of support to any scenario. 

The USCGC Northland is the second cutter to bear that name, the original Northland cutter, which served from 1927-1946. While patrolling the waters off Greenland in1944, she captured the crew and seized a German Naval trawler as the first American Naval capture of World War II. The original Northland went on to sink a submarine and destroy German radio and weather stations around Greenland.

Commissioned on 17 December 1984, the USCGC Northland has a displacement of approximately 1,800 tons and carries a crew of over 100 officers and enlisted personnel. Due to its multitude of support capabilities, the Northland is ideally suited for a variety of critical missions including search and rescue, law enforcement, homeland security, and even humanitarian operations.

Minted from solid bronze, using special deep-relief coining dies, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this coin pays tribute to the USCGC Northland and salutes the exceptional service of her crew. The obverse contains the USCGC Northland crest, imbued with bold enamel, with the words: \"From Aztec Shore to Artic Zone.” The reverse displays the Northland with the words “Honor, Respect, Devotion to Duty” and the name of its home port of Portsmouth, Virginia.
