Remember World War II history with this 3 Inch Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) Bronze Medal.

Authorized by Public Law 111-40, this medal is a bronze duplicate of the Congressional Gold Medal awarded to the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) in recognition of their pioneering military service and exemplary record, which forged revolutionary reform in the U.S. Armed Forces.

The obverse designed by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill, depicts the portrait of a WASP with three pilots in the foreground in period uniforms walking toward their aircraft at Avenger Field. The background features an airborne AT-6 breaking through the inner rim of the medal. Inscriptions include “WOMEN AIRFORCE SERVICE PILOTS” and “1942-1944.”

The reverse design features the three aircraft that the WASP flew during their training at Avenger Field, the AT-6, indicated by the number 264; the B-26 (Martin Marauder), indicated by the number 967; and the P-51. The WASP wings are depicted at the base of the design. The inscriptions are “THE FIRST WOMEN IN HISTORY TO FLY AMERICAN MILITARY AIRCRAFT,” “ACT OF CONGRESS” and "2009.”
