USS Thomas A. Edison (SSBN-610)

The USS Thomas A. Edison (SSBN-610) was a force for defending American interests and protecting freedom across the globe. An Ethan Allen-class ballistic-missile submarine for the US Navy, she was marvelously equipped to succeed in even the most demanding of missions. The Navy decommissioned the USS Thomas A. Edison on 1 December 1983.

The USS Thomas A. Edison was named after Thomas Alva Edison, one of America’s most successful inventors and businessmen. He developed several devices changed life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. He was called "The Wizard of Menlo Park" and was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention.

Commissioned on 10 March 1962, the USS Thomas A. Edison had a displacement of approximately 7,900 tons submerged and stretches some 410 feet in length. Armed with torpedoes and ballistic missiles, she was perfectly suited to the deterrence and her evolving mission of enforcing the Cold War peace.

Minted in the USA from solid bronze, finished with an antique patina, this coin pays tribute to the USS Thomas A. Edison and salutes the exceptional service of her crew. The obverse contains a scene of the vessel sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge near its homeport of San Francisco. The reverse displays the United States Navy logo.
