Manufacturer Description

This coin, minted for every Marine who has passed through the "Crossroads of the Marine Corps," is every Leatherneck's easy-to-carry tribute to Marine Corps Base Quantico. Sometimes abbreviated MCB Quantico, this key United States Marine Corps training base is located near Triangle, Virginia.

MCB Quantico is home to a wide range of institutions that serve the Marine Corps. The Corps' Combat Development Command is responsible for developing strategies for Marine combat and also includes the Marine Corps Officer Candidates School. The Marine Corps Research Center at Quantico pursues equipment research and development, especially in the field of telecommunications, for the Marine Corps. Quantico is also home to the Marine Corps Brig, a military prison. In addition to military functions, MCB Quantico also serves as a training base and research facility for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Agency.

Matching its moniker, the MCB Quantico challenge coin is bold and memorable, capturing the significant role that MCB Quantico plays for the Marine Corps. It honors all courageous Marines who have served or passed though MCB Quantico during its long and storied history.

The obverse of the MCB Quantico challenge coin features the official seal of MCB Quantico - a red scarlet banner lined with gold with the Latin inscription ''Semper Progredi" ("always forward," the motto of Marine Corps Base Quantico). The reverse features the globe-and-anchor official seal of the United States Marine Corps.
