Semper Paratus, always prepared, relates to the Coast Guard for there pride in being ready for anything, at all times. Our Semper Paratus - U.S. Coast Guard Pin is a great representation of their motto. It is made with the high-quality cloisonné process, filled with hard enamel colors, gold plated and polished smooth-to-the-touch. This pin is a nice gesture when honoring soldiers for a commemorative ceremony or as a remembrance of our loved ones who give their all to protect us. Our military coast guard pin includes a standard clutch back and is individually poly bagged.
