Symbols Used in Police Coins
The choice of what exactly to depict on a challenge or commemorative coin is important because of the lasting and symbolic nature of such a coin. Often the symbols selected for use in the coin design are widely recognized and historic with a rich legacy.
The Law Enforcement Badge
A perennial favorite design for one side of a law enforcement coin is to reproduce the star or crest depicted on the department badge. Such badges have a history of development and symbolism that makes them a compelling choice to use in the coin design. Learn more.
The patron saint of law enforcement, Saint Michael is usually depicted as an armor-clad, winged angel slaying the devil. This image is a commonly used symbol associated with law enforcement and one of the stock dies of Northwest Territorial Mint. This Saint dates back to biblical mythology. Learn more here.
