Do you need US Navy Ship challenge coins?
It was your home for years. You served in the United States Navy for a number of years or even made it a career going to sea on numerous occasions and quite possibly on a variety of of US Navy ships. So again why not have a US Navy ship challenge coin? The answer is really quite obvious: because you were there!
Taking a Piece of the Ship to Shore
With an average of three years per rotation the US Navy Sailor spends their time working aboard their ship. They know every square inch. For them it is a matter of pride working day after day cleaning it, working in it and protecting it. When you get down to the sheer basics of it all even cleaning the ship’s bell leaves a sense of pride because you pass into generations of US Navy Sailors that connect with a ship. This is theirs, yours and those who will take ownership of it in years to come. A US Navy ship challenge coin is important because it represents your USN ship. It has to have the detail, character, professional and above all things the quality expected to represent so fine a ship.
Its about identifying with something very special and a home that is called upon to defend the US Constitution, freedom and the American way of life. Sailors come from all over the United States and bond together in a shared space with common goals and honing skills and becoming personal leaders as well as the leaders of the other Sailors as well. There is nothing more cohesive than a ship at sea with all oars rowing in the same direction. A US Navy ship challenge coin is all about these friendships and the tight and hard working crews of the United States Navy. That is why a US Navy ship challenge coin is so meaningful.

How to Make a Unique Design
When it comes to designing a US Navy ship challenge coin from the inspiration behind the challenge coin including its history, its special characteristics, mottos, name and hull number. Vision Strike Coins designed the US Navy ship challenge coins for the USS Constitution. Before even starting the art they researched the history of the ship, learned about its namesake, the battles and wars it fought in, how and why she was still listed on the active US Navy ship rolls and that she even is famous for being the only US Navy ship on active service responsible for the sinking of an enemy warship. We had to go back to the War of 1812 to learn about this. To build a great US Navy ship challenge coin is all about learning about it. Then the art can begin.
Designing Navy Ship Challenge Coins
When designing a US Navy ship challenge coin it can have some unique opportunities both creatively as well as its construction. Every US Navy ship has a story, a sea story, whether it was how many times it circumnavigated the globe, the times it crossed the equator turning its crew into a Shellback or becoming Bluenoses upon a US Navy submarine reaching the Arctic Circle. Every coin a story and every US Navy ship challenge coin with a life of its own. Our crew of US veterans have the background and years of experience to understand, listen to and comprehend the military aspects of each coin design they create.
