Product Description

The USS Ohio (SSGN-726) is a force for defending American interests and protecting freedom across the globe. An Ohio-class guided-missile submarine for the U.S. Navy, she is impressively equipped to succeed in even the most demanding of missions. The USS Ohio named after our 17th state, Ohio being an Iroquois word meaning “great river.”

Commissioned on 11 November 1981, the USS Ohio has a displacement of approximately 18,750 metric tons submerged and stretches some 560 feet in length. Armed with torpedoes and Tomahawk cruise missiles, she is ideally suited to deterrence and her evolving mission of protecting and safeguarding freedom wherever it might be threatened.

Minted from bronze, and finished with an antique patina, this 2" coin pays tribute to the USS Ohio and salutes the exceptional service of her crew. The obverse contains a scene of the submerged USS Ohio alongside Neptune, the King of the Ocean. The reverse displays the shield and crest of the USS Ohio.
