Coast Guard gives away thousands of coins to commemorate Training Ship.

Operation-Sail-New-York-Harbor-tall-shipNew London, CT-May 5, 2001-The Barque Eagle, America’s Tall Ship and the pride of the U.S. Coast Guard’s training ships, sailed into various ports along the eastern seaboard. Those greeting the ship were treated to a beautifully-crafted custom commemorative coin depicting the Barque Eagle in full sail. The USCG coin, which reads U.S. Coast Guard, America’s Tall Ship on one side, also has 1-800-Get-USCG and www.uscg.mil on the reverse side.

“The Coast Guard needed something lightweight that showed the clarity of the ships, yet at a decent price to be able to hand out to a mass number of people.” Said Melissa Olsen of Northstar Sportswear.

At under 20 cents, the Coast Guard coins, made of Natural Aluminum by Osborne Coinage Company, make a perfect piece for giveaway promotions. Additionally, heavier coins struck in Brass, Verbronze and Nickel Silver make excellent gifts for donors and dignitaries at such events.
