The third in our series of four coins has arrived. We have received the bronze coins, but we are waiting for the silver coins. We are thrilled with the detail picked up on this third coin. The image on this coin is the ship’s crest of the USS NORTH DAKOTA (SSN-784). It joins our first coin with the ship’s crest of the 1st USS NORTH DAKOTA (BB-29) and our second coin with the image of our boat’s sponsor, Katie Fowler. The fourth coin will be launched closer to NORTH DAKOTA’s commissioning in 2014. The reverse side of all four coins is the same image of the profile of USS NORTH DAKOTA against the North Dakota State Flag. here are images of all three coins and an image of the reverse side. The reverse image is of my first silver coin.
