Officer's Mess Coin

The Officer's Mess here at CFB Winnipeg voted to give out special coins to departing members who have been here over a year. I believe most messes do this, and there are lots of nice examples of designs available. They are having a contest (I think they only got two entries though!) and this is my contribution. It's a vintage maple leaf on the left and a stylized plane on the right, in two shades of blue (what else? It's a good thing I like Air Force Blue because there's nothing else around). In the plane is a simplified map of downtown Winnipeg, focusing on Portage and Main, of course. The yellow parts would be in metal, and the colours in enamel or whatever it is they make them out of.
