US Border Patrol
Hailing America’s Everyday Heroes
As the mobile uniformed law enforcement arm of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Border Patrol is chiefly responsible for safeguarding Americans from threats that may cross the 4,000-mile U.S.-Canadian border, the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexican border, and the 2,000 miles of coastal waters surrounding the Florida peninsula and Puerto Rico. Charged not only with discovering and thwarting entry into the United States of illegal aliens, drugs, currency, and other contraband, these dedicated men and women are also America’s frontline troops in the Global War on Terrorism, detecting and preventing enemies of the United States and their weapons — including weapons of mass destruction — from crossing into the United States.
As a licensed partner of the U.S. Border Patrol, Northwest Territorial Mint is proud to create coins, medallions, and more featuring the organization’s distinctive logo. The custom products we create are used as awards, tokens of service longevity, retirement gifts, keepsakes for visiting dignitaries, and much more. The coin featured above, which is struck in brass and finished in antique bronze, illustrates our talent for reproducing images in crisp detail. This is our way of hailing the work of America’s everyday heroes.
