Jack Skaggs Commemorative Coin Catalog

In 2002, council member Jack Skaggs took it upon himself to commission a commemorative coin for  the US Marine Corps Coordinating Council of Oklahoma to be given away as a memento of the Marine Corps birthday luncheon. 

This started a tradition of creating a commemorative coin for the annual Marine Corps birthday luncheon that is funded by individual coin donors, separate and distinct from donations received for the support of Oklahoma Marine Corps units. These coins are given away to each attendee at the conclusion of the Marine Corps birthday luncheon.

Jack Skaggs passed away on August 3, 2011 and the coin program has been named in his honor.
