Marine Custom Coin Design & Characteristics
This month’s coin is particularly patriotic, utilizing the combination of red and blue to reflect the qualities of the “Thunder and Steel” 12th Marine Regiment, one of the many exemplary regiments that comprise the United States Marines. Commemorated to remember the hard work and dedication of the 12th Marine Regiment, one side of the coin’s face features a thick blue border encircling the coin’s circumference. The phrase “United States Marine Corps” is written across the top, and the words “for excellence” are embossed on the bottom. Against a red backdrop lays a raised gold insignia of the 12th Marine Insignia. Just beneath the insignia is the phrase “semper fidelis,” which translates to “always faithful” and is the motto of the US Marines.
Meanwhile, the opposite side of the coin is a beautiful, roped border with an all-red background. Embossed across the top and bottom read “United States Marine Corps.” Then a thin, small gold border encapsulates a raised Eagle, Globe, and Anchor (or EGA) with stunning detail. This is the official emblem and insignia of the United States Marine Corps and has its roots steeped in the early United Kingdom’s Royal Marines as well as the Continental Marines.
This month’s coin is a striking example of the bold design, patriotism, pride, and tradition all reflective of the United States Marines and all the armed forces. When words fall short to communicate your sense of gratitude towards a specific unit, custom challenge coins serve as the perfect gift. Our coins function as a timeless token designed to be displayed and capture the memories shared among family and friends. If you’re looking for a gift that speaks to your appreciation and connection for a particular group, pick our team! We at Unit Coins would love to help transform your design ideas into reality.
About the 12th Marine Regiment
As an artillery regiment of the US Marine Corps, the 12th Marine Regiment is based at Camp Smedley Butler in Okinawa, Japan. The 12th Marine Regiment also goes by the bold nickname “Thunder and Steel.” This regiment specializes in providing both close and continuous support in the form of neutralizing, destroying, or suppressing targets which may threaten the support unit’s success. The unit is comprised of two artillery battalions, the 1st Battalion, 12th Marines, and the 3rd Battalion, 12th Marines. Additionally, one headquarters battery also makes up the 12th Marine Regiment. The unit was activated on October 4, 1927, and has served as a means of support throughout World War II, the Global War on Terror, and Operation Enduring Freedom.
