Gunner Up! - USMC
“Gunner Up!” is the cry when the enemy closes in on the convoy, so that your brother-in-arms can shift topside to lay down the extra firepower. This coin honors the proud Marines who battle great evil to protect their brothers from danger. When your fellow Marines call for “Gunner Up!” you know it’s time to rock and roll. Insurgents beware, the heavy guns are coming out, and if you’re in the way, it’s going to end very badly for you. Give this coin as the perfect gift or reminder for the warriors of our United States Marines.
From the South Pacific to Kandahar, the brotherhood of Marines have lived up to their reputation as the “First to Fight,” leading the charge in the most intense battles in the history of our great country. The U.S. Marine Corps has instilled fear in America’s enemies for more than 200 years, producing bonds that only those who have marched into battle, side by side, can fully comprehend. No one knows you better than your brother in arms. It’s a bond that gives strength in the trying times and difficulties ahead.
Minted in the USA from solid bronze, using special deep-relief coining dies, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this coin is dedicated to the tough fighting spirit and proud brotherhood of the United States Marine Corps. The obverse depicts a battle hardened Marine, rough and ready for a fight, wielding his trusty ‘Ma Deuce’ M2 Machine Gun. The reverse displays the symbol of the United States Marine Corps.
