Our USS North Dakota Committee is closing out all of the commemorative merchandise we had to build up to the commissioning of our boat USS NORTH DAKOTA (USS-784) last October 25, 2014. The only merchandise we have left are commemorative coins. As you know we ordered four different commemorative coins, quite a few in bronze and a limited number of each in Sterling silver. This photo is of all four coins in bronze, with the 5th coin all by itself being the reverse side of all four coins.
The 1st coin has the crest of the 1st USS NORTH DAKOTA (BB-29). The 2nd coin has the image of our beautiful Ship’s Sponsor, Katie Fowler. The 3rd coin has the crest of the 2nd USS NORTH DAKOTA (SSN-74). The 4th coin has the image of the Commissioning Pennant noting our boat’s commissioning date of October 25, 2014. The reverse side of all four coins has the image of our boat with the North Dakota state flag in the background. These coins originally sold for $20 each, but we are now selling sets of all four coins for $15. We have 59 sets left.
On the Sterling coins we only have 35 of the 3rd coin and only 42 of the 4th coin left. These originally sold for $100 each, but we are selling them at the close out price of $50 each.
This a photo of the 3rd coin in Sterling silver:

We sold quite a few coins in Dickinson on Tuesday, January 26th, at the Dickinson Chapter of the American Petroleum Institute. This is photo of me, Bob Wefald, selling coins after the ASPI meeting:
