Military Coins of Excellence hadn’t made their way into the mainstream when I was serving in the United States Navy. Back in 1993 we created custom patches to document where we had been – cruise jackets were a big thing back then. My Division Officer, LCPO and those above me used to compliment us by saying Bravo Zulu, which was their way of saying good job.
Everyone likes to be acknowledged for the effort and sacrifice they make while serving their country and that’s where coins of excellence come into play. You probably know them by many names, coins of excellence, commander coins, custom military challenge coins, unit coins and the list goes on. Let’s add one to the list, how about a custom military retirement coin of excellence.
