Description
1 ¾" Diameter:

The modern wings are based on the Henry “Hap” Arnold wings, proudly worn by the Army Air Forces during WWII. The bent wings with a star and circle are meant to symbolize the service’s heritage.

Part of the symbol’s inspiration can be attributed to Winston Churchill? While designing the famous wings upon which the Air Force symbol is based, Army Air Force General Henry “Hap” Arnold and his artist drew inspiration from a photo of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s famous “V for Victory” hand gesture. When Arnold saw a sketch of the wings bent up rather than straight, he reportedly exclaimed “That’s exactly what I wanted!”

Making up the top half of the symbol, the wings signify the enlisted men and women of the Air Force. Arguably, the most meaning-packed section is the center star. The five points of the star stand for each component of the total force and family: Active Duty, Civilians, Reserve, Guard and Retirees. In addition, the star represents the Air Force’s space force, as well as representing the officer corps that leads the service.  The coin is minted in solid nickel and given a beautiful baked enamel finish.
