Probably the funniest coin presentation I've ever had. I was at a CSM's office, briefing him on a little project we are working on for him. He pulls out a coin and goes "SGT DoubleARon, this coin is really gay, I'm sorry we don't have a better one, but I didn't design it, and I'm working on designing a new one. Thanks for all you do.'

Does it have a rainbow on one side and Richard Simmons on the other?
Because that would be pretty fuckin' gay.

Not I.  I think the highest I have is from a Colonel, but I think I might have one from a CSM.  The coolest coin that I've seen,  was recently given to me.  It is from Combined Joint Task Force Troy, the counter IED guys in Iraq.

Who is the 4 star? My friend got one  a while back and showed it to me. It's pretty cool, shaped like an ID tag with the hole and everything.

My two most-cherished coins came from a fellow SSgt. and a MSgt.
Then again, I've never been "coined" by a Zero (Officer).
