You don't have to be a collector to want to get your hands on the officially licensed USMC coins available at SGT GRIT. Although our big selection of Marine Corps coins could provide a solid foundation for a fascinating, fun and educational hobby, these also make wonderful gifts for anyone with a connection to the service, from young recruits to grizzled veterans and, yes, even long-suffering wives.

True Grit

Highlighted in a display case or merely carried in one's pocket for good luck, a United States Marine Corps coin is more than just a simple coin. It suggests an entire philosophy - one of determination, mental and physical toughness and going into challenging situations where others fear to tread.

When you browse our collection of hundreds of unique coins, you'll find historically oriented coins. Our Marine challenge coin honors Marines planting the Stars and Stripes at Iwo Jima during World War II. Measuring about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, the obverse features the famous image of the Marines planting the flag. The reverse shows the eagle, globe and anchor, the official insignia of the U.S. Marine Corps.

Units and Wars

We have coins here honoring particular units, like the 3rd Marine Division, and ones for particular wars, like Vietnam. Our MCRD coins make great presents for any recruits who have made it through the grueling boot camp experience, whether at Parris Island or San Diego. We carry coins saluting Marine veterans as well as mothers and wives of Marines.

You'll also find Marine Corps coins here for good luck, like St. Christopher's coins. Our coins with inspirational prayers and mottoes will give their carriers courage and become cherished keepsakes.
