USCGC Polar Star (WAGB-10)

The USCGC Polar Star (WAGB-10) plays a critical role in researching and protecting American and humanitarian interests in Polar Regions. A heavy icebreaker, she is tasked with supporting a wide range of research activities as well as supporting other crucial missions.

During Antarctic deployments, the Polar Star’s primary missions include breaking a channel through the sea ice to the McMurdo Research Station in the Ross Sea, allowing resupply ships to bring food, fuel, and other goods so the station makes it through another winter. Polar Star also serves as a scientific research platform with five laboratories and accommodations for up to 20 scientists. The "J"-shaped cranes and work areas near the stern and port side of ship give scientists the capability to do at-sea studies in the fields of geology, oceanography, sea-ice physics and other disciplines.

Commissioned in 1976, the USCGC Polar Star has a displacement of approximately 13,194 long tons and carries a crew of 141 officers and enlisted personnel, as well as 20 civilian scientists. Due to its multitude of support capabilities, the Polar Star is ideally suited for a variety of polar missions including logistics, search and rescue, ship escort, environmental protection, and enforcement of laws and treaties.

Minted from solid bronze and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this coin pays tribute to the USCGC Polar Star and salutes the exceptional service of her crew. The obverse contains the USCGC Polar Star sailing toward Antarctic waters, with its home port of Seattle, WA underneath. The reverse displays the seal of the Polar Star, imbued with a bold enamel accents.
