Fort Sill is the US Army's home for field artillery. At Fort Sill, artillery soldiers are trained day and night to "put steel on target." The Fort's three-pronged approach to training and preparedness makes it one of the best training posts in the Army: it is comprised of the world renowned US Army Field Artillery School, the Field Artillery Training Center, and the IIId Armored Corps Artillery, the largest field artillery complex in the free world. The Fort Sill Field Artillery challenge coin salutes the finest artillery soldiers in the world, and the facility that remains 'home' for Field Artillery in the free world.
The Fort Sill Field Artillery challenge coin is a worthy keepsake of the Fort's recognized excellence. It is minted from a brass alloy, and finished with rich enamels. Gold-colored crossed canons rest on a deep maroon background. A black border holds FIELD ARTILLERY, FORT SILL, OK. The reverse of the coin is a representation of the Great Seal on a green background with a gold edge-band and the lettering UNITED STATES ARMY.
