This beautiful 3″ x 3″ diamond-shaped challenge coin symbolizes some of the most important aspects of the espionage trade. The obverse exhibits some of the most important tools in a spy’s arsenal. The lock picks are used for surreptitious entry of an adversary’s office or home. The ink pen is for the recording and transmitting of critical intelligence information. The camera is for clandestine photography by a confidential source, and the knife is a last line of defense when an agent or case officer is in the enemy’s heartland.
The reverse features the Spycraft 101 logo with a background pulled from the famous Kryptos cryptogram, featured at the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. To this day, Kryptos has never been decrypted.
The black plastic display case fits the coin perfectly and makes for a great conversation piece, or display for your office or bookshelf. Order yours today.
