The USS Ramage (DDG-61) is vital for defending American interests and protecting freedom across the globe. An Arleigh Burke class guided-missile destroyer for the US Navy, she is marvelously equipped to succeed in even the most demanding of missions.

Named after the highly decorated submarine commander, the USS Ramage and her crew have lived up to Vice Admiral Lawson “Red” Ramage’s legacy of pride in service and strength of character. Vice Admiral Ramage was awarded the Medal of Honor, two Navy Crosses, and the Silver Star Medal for heroism during World War II. He received the Medal of Honor for single handedly sinking two enemy ships and badly damaging three others, saving numerous lives. It was called 48 of the wildest minutes of submarine warfare and cemented Admiral Ramage’s reputation.

Commissioned on 22 July 1995, the USS Ramage has a displacement of approximately 8,900 long tons and stretches some 505 feet in length. Armed with naval guns and anti-air, anti-surface, and anti-submarine missiles, plus other weapons, she is equipped for surface-to-air, surface-to-surface, and anti-submarine warfare. She also is the home to a SH-60 Sea Hawk helicopter.

This coin is 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 USS Ramage and salutes the exceptional service of her crew. The obverse contains a portrait of the ship’s namesake, Vice Admiral Ramage, with the words “Red’s Thundering Warriors” under a starboard view of the vessel and the Medal of Honor. The reverse displays the shield and crest of the USS Ramage along with the ship’s motto of “Par Excellence.”
