Texas Crime Prevention Association Challenge Coin
This week’s Challenge Coin of the Week comes from our partners at the Texas Crime Prevention Association!
ABOUT THE COIN.
The front of the commemorative coin honors the 40th anniversary of the Association. Centered and in the background is the image of the flag of Texas, with the number “40” imprinted in gold. A gold wreath is also imprinted in gold and encircles the number. Towards the outer edge of the coin with a blue background contains the Association’s mission statement in gold lettering “PRESERVING SAFE COMMUNITIES SINCE 1975.” At the coin’s four and seven o’clock are two gold stars; and the coin’s six o’clock recognizes the active years of the organization.
The obverse side of the coin contains a gold background. Centered is the official seal of the Texas Crime Prevention Association, which feature the colors of the State of Texas (red, white and blue) and a five-point star, representing the “Lone Star State.” Outside of the Association’s seal are the nine seals that represent the regional affiliates of the Association: Alamo Area, Central Texas, East Texas, Far West Texas, North Texas, South Texas, Texas Chisolm, Texas Gulf and West Texas Crime Prevention Associations.
