February’s coin of the month is a striking showpiece, illustrative of both our technical expertise and creative flair.

The Design
Unit coin’s is excited to share with you the design details of this month’s coin. This coin is particularly punchy and fun, capturing the spirit of the Combat Logistics Battalion 1, also nicknamed “the Charlie Company.” February’s coin is flashy, and utilizes the colors red, black, and yellow to recreate the look of a classic deck of cards. Both sides are equally engaging, while paying honor to the hard work and dedication of the Charlie Company. 

To start, both sides share a gold rope border, with alternating diamonds, spades, hearts, and clubs encircling the border. One side is the outline of Iraq over a stark white background, with a red castle set over the outline. Above the castle reads, “Operation Iraqi Freedom” in Bold lettering, with the name of the Combat Logistic Battalion 1 etched beneath the design. Hovering over the castle is the number “8.1” in the same bright cherry red. 

Meanwhile, the other side of the coin was created to match the look of a jack playing card, with the outline of the jack over a similarly white background. The strategic use of yellow, black and red all serve to add depth to the character of the classic jack, with a large black spade stationed in the upper left-hand section of the coin. Above the jack reads “Charlie Company,” while the bottom reads “Jack of all trades.” The unit, designed to provide support to Regimental Combat Team 1, is also known by the moto “Always Forward, and this coin commemorates their time serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom. The coin speaks to a sense of shared comradery, while serving as a means to remember and honor those in the Charlie Company.
