2020 Challenge Coin:

This circle on the 2020 Challenge Coin reflects a story that will continue without end. The stars are symbols of the ten battles fought. The colors used are the red and gold of the Marine Corps, and the “official” navy blue and gold of the US Navy.

The dark blue ¾ circle represents the percentage of crew lost at sea and the ¼ grey at the bottom symbolizes the percentage of survivors. Heritage, honor and legacy are the foundation.
