Ruling the skies at home and abroad since 1947, the United States Air Force is the youngest member of the US Armed Forces. Despite its youth, the USAF has been described as the most advanced and technical branch falling under the US Military. Much of the Air Force’s technological breakthroughs have been in the form of advanced modern fighter/combat and surveillance aircraft, like the F-22 Raptor.
The US Air Force is comprised of 360,000 active duty, 75,000 reserves, and another 170,000 civilians. Some highlights of these Airmen responsibilities include operating over 6,000 aircraft, control of approximately 500 ICBMs, and a classified number of intelligence satellites.
Involvement of the USAF in overseas conflicts has included every major initiative from the Korean War to the Afghanistan War, not including covert and classified missions conducted around the world.
Domestic responsibilities have expanded since the 9/11 attacks in New York City. The Air Force now has complete authority and control over airspace within the United States – a duty once left to the FAA and local Police Agencies.
Although heavily equipped and completely capable in any conflict situation, the USAF also is very active in humanitarian projects around the globe and provides much needed support to US and foreign airlift cargo campaigns.
The most recent developments in the Department of the Air Force are a shift towards increasing use and implementation of unmanned aircraft. The public may better know such craft to be described as “drones.”
With such a multi-faceted force, it is no wonder that some of the most unique custom challenge coins are donned with the USAF insignia.
Air Force challenge coins can be distributed to squadrons which have flown on heroic missions or individual pilots or crew members who have stood out in the line of duty. We also recommend them for special events and fundraisers. Air Force challenge coins are as enduring as their messages, and we provide a number of display options for their presentation. PVC envelopes come with every order free of charge, but an acrylic coin box, plastic capsule or velvet coin box can be perfect for displaying an Air Force challenge coin. Velvet coin pouches are ideal for giving out Air Force challenge coins at special events and fundraisers.
Our design team is experienced with creating custom USAF coins and understands the gravity and meaning attached to the coins and the feelings of pride they can instill in officers, friends, family members and supports of the USAF. We allow you to customize every facet of your coin and choose options for materials, paint, enamels, finishes, edge cuts and more. With our cut-out option you can order a coin in any shape, so your coin can be as unique as you want it.
Still looking for more customization options for your Air Force coins? With dual plating you can make your insignia stand out even more, and silk-screen and offset-printed images allow you to adorn your coins with any design you want. Epoxy dome coating and embossed molds can be used to provide a 3D effect. We have hard and soft enamel, and offer glitter and glow in the dark paint for some extra finesse.
