The Non Sibi Sed Patriae Ancient Liberty US Navy Challenge Coin marks the US Navy’s connection to the history, lore and fighting spirit of the sea warriors of legendary past. The ancient coin of the United States Navy. Some coins define the time and history of the age they were minted in. Some nautical challenge coins define a people, a civilization or a culture of sea-going warriors that have become mythical. Throughout the ages as men have gone to sea to battle their adversaries on the waters, seas and oceans of the world their first rule was to successful navigate harrowing tides to reach the enemy. Not always successful in the case of the Spanish Armada as it moved to English shores only to be sunk by English seas and deadly winds. The Roman Trireme sailing to battle its enemies to only be sunk in Aegean or Mediterranean waters. Perhaps it was the Phoenicians that encountered troubles when delivering spices to the Fertile Crescent unable to reach quiet and peaceful shores. The second rule of the sea warriors was to win the battle. To do so meant having the right men at the helm, the right warrior on the deck, the sword drawn and the shield raised ready to board the enemy warship and set anarchy aboard the enemy vessel it encountered. Later it was the cannon, musket, and cutlass that would win the day. Today it is the missile, torpedo, naval air and the sophistication of modern day naval technology that turns the tide in a sea war. All of these battles and are encompassed in this ancient naval coin.
