Displayed on the front of the coin is the iconic Republic F-105 Thunderchief arrowhead patch,  worn by so many Thud pilots during the day when Thuds roamed free. And, of course, the saying "THERE IS A WAY". 


The back of the coin features the iconic Republic F-105 Thunderchief flying right at you, with the "100 Missions" and "THUD OUT" patches. Plus some of the highlights of the THUDS fantastic legecy.
