Storekeepers function as logistics experts, managing and tracking the flow of material goods across all Coast Guard operations.
Specializing in the procurement and distribution of a wide range of supplies, Storekeepers demonstrate superior organizational abilities and possess a proven aptitude for finance, accounting, and other related tasks. Charged with inventory and property management, heavy freight transportation, purchasing, and the command and control of various supply chains, they are vital to the success of the Coast Guard mission throughout the world.
This coin is dedicated to the tireless commitment and expert skill of all those who serve as Coast Guard Storekeepers. Featured on the obverse is a detailed rendering of the rating badge worn by these individuals. In honor of the Coast Guard's heritage as America's oldest continuous maritime force, the reverse depicts a team of intrepid Coast Guard sailors braving rough surf as they approach a lighthouse and features a space for engraving.
