Pacific Command Challenge Coins

The Oldest and Largest of the U.S. Unified Commands


United States Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM) is one of six geographic combatant commands defined by the Department of Defense's Unified Command Plan (UCP). The area covered by Pacific Command encompasses 52% of the world’s surface, stretching from the western shores of the U.S. all the way to India and including nations like Australia, China, North and South Korea and an untold number of smaller islands. With so much space to cover, it’s no surprise that Pacific command is the largest of the U.S. Combatant Commands organized within the Department of Defense. And established on January 1, 1947, it’s also the oldest. 

Representing such a large and historic command is no easy task. Pacific Command challenge coins honor the men and women working hard to keep such a large and eclectic region safe. Keeping an area comprised of 36 nations speaking 3,000 different languages and featuring only five U.S. allies unified is about as difficult a task as you’re likely to find in the military. But the service members within PACOM work at it each day and their efforts deserve to be commemorated with custom challenge coins. 

For over 15 years, Signature Coins has provided Department of Defense challenge coins and military challenge coins to soldiers and personnel stationed around the world. Increasing the team unity and camaraderie of service members is what we do best. With so much experience under our belts, we’ve dedicated ourselves to learning as much about the unique needs of our many military and government clients as possible. To create a keepsake your PACOM personnel will cherish forever, contact us today and see what our team of artists can do for you. 

Unit Specific Pacific Command Challenge Coins

As a part of the DoD Unified Command Plan, the efforts of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command can only be successful if the members of the command are, in fact, unified. Unit specific challenge coins have worked to keep members of military units unified since the beginning of the challenge coin tradition. 

When stationed far from home, the members of a soldier’s unit become their family. Unit challenge coins are a physical embodiment of the bonds they share and a portable keepsake they can carry with them as a reminder of their unique brotherhood. 

A command that covers 52% of the world can’t help but to be massive and intricately organized. Some of the units creating the force structure of Pacific Command include:

  • United States Army Pacific
    • Eighth Army
    • The 7th Infantry Division
    • The 25th Infantry Division
    • United States Army Alaska
