coin packagingUSS Sampson (DDG-102)

The USS Sampson (DDG-102) holds an important place in defending American interests and protecting freedom across the globe. As an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer for the U.S. Navy, she is impressively equipped to succeed in even the most demanding of missions. The USS Sampson is named after Rear Admiral William Thomas Sampson, an American naval hero who was most famous for his victory in the Battle of Santiago de Cuba in the Spanish-American War.

Commissioned on 3 November 2007, the USS Sampson has a displacement of approximately 9,200 long tons and stretches some 509 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 for two SH-60 Sea Hawk helicopters.

This coin is minted in bronze, finished with an antique patina, and pays tribute to the USS Sampson, saluting the exceptional service of her crew. The obverse contains a montage of the ship’s namesake, Admiral Sampson, with a portside view of the USS Sampson cutting through the water. The reverse displays the shield and crest of the USS Sampson, imbued in bold colored enamel.
