1.) question belongs in hobbies

2.) sounds like a commemorative coin, so it would depend on when it was created. It is not legal tender at any rate.

Question by tobeconn44: Marine Corps Question!!!?
what does it mean if higher ranking marine awards you with a coin? I think they're called challenge coins? It has their rank and United States marine Corps on it.
Is a gunnery Sgt. a high rank?
what do these coins symbolize? If anything? is this something important or just something that marines trade off and on? please look at other extened details

Answer by theshinynickel
Ok...yea they can be used as challenge coins....basically if you were at a bar or anywhere there's drinks with a Marine and one of you whips out a Challenge coin then the Marine who has the highest ranking coin on him wins a drink...the loser buys.

Question by brookiecookie: Do you think we should make a piece of paper money or coin with Barack Obama on it?
Barak Obama has recently made our nation's history. On January 19, he officially became our first African American president, therefore I feel he should have his place on his own piece of paper or coin money. What do you think?

Question by Bill Board: What should I collect when visiting states/countries?
I'm in the USMC, so I've definitely done more traveling in the past year alone than I've done in my entire life. I leave for Chile next month, and that will probably be my only time there. Nothing like stamps or coins, and shot glasses is nice but over done. Was thinking dirt like in Saving Private Ryan?

Any suggestions?

Answer by J D
Start by learning that the Marine Corps doesn't have drill sergeants, they have drill instructors or DI's.

Things to memorize are rank structure and your 11 general orders.

You get plenty of sleep in recruit training. The only time they deprive you of sleep is at the very end during the Crucible. What may be sleep depriving is infantry training. If it is in NC in the winter it is cold and if it rains you will be sleeping in water because they don't let you trench your tents due to the number of people trained.

Most people graduate, only 10-12% don't make it.

Question by Dre: I need info on a presidential coin/token?
I have a coin/token I found and have found no info on it online. It has Rutherford B. Hayes portrait on one side (facing forward) with his name on the top half circle and "1877 - 19th President of the United States - 1831" on the bottom half circle. On the back it says his name "BORN OCT 4 1822 UNION CIVIL WAR (a year I cant see) LOST IN POPULAR VOTE BUT WON ELECTORAL VOTE 1ST PRESIDENT TO HAVE A TELEPHONE IN WHITE HOUSE DIED JAN. 17, 1893"
re: this pic
The coin has Hayes's portrait but he's facing forward so you see his whole face, not a profile. And the coin is rather light, like the same material as a penny.

While cleaning out my granny's new house we found many Air Force coins and medals left there by the previous tenant. I have about 5 here with me and was looking for information about what they mean or what they are worth. We don't plan on selling them.. just curious. I have looked at 'challenge coin' websites, but those have not helped me at all. If you can help please do. if you need 2 see pictures email me @ lovinlivin2008@yahoo.com and enter USAF as the subject. Thank you.
