A MESSAGE FROM OUR DESIGN CHAIR, JOHN ACTON:
Above is the winning design for the Class of 2018’s Commitment Coin.
Following a transparent design process, six complete coin designs (one with an additional back option) were submitted and posted, on schedule. After 2.5 days of voting online, this design was the clear winner.
One very small change was made at the suggestions and input we received, and the 5-point star in the top border, above the eagle, was changed to reflect the “Polaris star.” We hope you agree with our decision to make the alteration.
MANY THANKS to each of you who supported and contributed to the process, whether making suggestions or actually submitting a design. Well done!
Based on the winning design, a manufacturer/mint house will review our selected design (and might make a suggestion or two to tweak the design), and offer bids to make the die, and produce this beautiful coin, where the Spirit Mission Board will review for consideration.
Delivery of the coins from the manufacturer will be coordinated, tracked, and followed, all the way to the Commitment Dinner in August, in an attempt to ensure that every 2018 cadet receives their coin.
Thanks again for your active participation. We’ve come up with a great memento to mark this major milestone!
