USCG Patrol Boat (WPB 87)

The USCG Patrol Boat WPB 87s plays a crucial role in protecting American’s coastal borders and enforcing our laws and regulations. Replacing the former 82’ Point class boats, the Marine Protector class is a class of 87-foot-long United States Coast Guard coastal patrol boats. Each boat is named after a marine predator.

Ordered in 1999, Marine Protectors have a displacement of approximately 91 tons and carries a crew of 10 personnel. They are readily equipped for search and rescue operations, security patrols, and interdiction of people and drug smugglers. Capable of speeds over 25 knots, Marine Protectors can launch a boarding party while the vessel is underway by using the ship’s stern launching ramp. They are also equipped with 2 manual M2 Browning machine guns.

Minted in the USA 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 entire WPB 87 fleet and crews. The obverse features a frontal view of a patrol boat cutting through the water with the Coast Guard motto “Semper Paratus” meaning “Always Ready” below. The reverse displays the logo of the U.S. Coast Guard.
