Here is a quick history and review of the structure of the Department of Defense (Defense Department, USDOD, DOD, DoD or in Metonymy known as ‘The Pentagon’). The DoD is the Executive Department of the Government of the United States of America charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government concerned directly with national security and the United States Armed Forces.
The Department – headed by the Secretary of Defense – has three subordinate military departments: the U.S. Department of the Army, the U.S. Department of the Navy, and the U.S. Department of the Air Force. In addition, there are many Defense Agencies such as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), the Missile Defense Agency, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Pentagon Force Protection Agency (PFPA), all of which are under the command of the Secretary of Defense. DOD also operates several joint services schools, including the National Defense University (NDU) and the National War College (NWC).
All of these agencies, departments, and groups commission the most sought after department of defense coins, challenge chips, and other unique custom products which are prized, and highly desired by collectors and service members alike.
Department of Defense Custom Coins
Department of Defense custom coin projects often contain elements of the office and department along with their rank or command flag insignia. These coins are traditionally made with the highest quality base metals, baked enamel paints and other details due to the fact these offices often have higher budgets allowances to work with for these projects. As you can see form the examples below, they can vary in style based on the office.
