Marine Corps Base Quantico VA Challenge Coin
This coin, minted for every Marine who has passed through the "Crossroads of the Marine Corps," is every Leatherneck's easy-to-carry tribute to Marine Corps Base Quantico. Sometimes abbreviated MCB Quantico, this key United States Marine Corps training base is located near Triangle, Virginia.

MCB Quantico is home to a wide range of institutions that serve the Marine Corps. The Corps' Combat Development Command is responsible for developing strategies for Marine combat and also includes the Marine Corps Officer Candidates School. The Marine Corps Research Center at Quantico pursues equipment research and development, especially in the field of telecommunications, for the Marine Corps. Quantico is also home to the Marine Corps Brig, a military prison. In addition to military functions, MCB Quantico also serves as a training base and research facility for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Agency.
