In the world of ammunition, few names evoke as much respect and admiration as Hornady. For 75 years, Hornady Ammunition has been synonymous with quality, innovation, and dependability. As they mark this significant milestone, we at C. Forbes, Inc. are honored to have collaborated with them in designing and minting a special 75th Anniversary Commemorative Coin.

Hornady’s journey began in 1949 when Joyce Hornady founded the company with a simple goal: to make better bullets than any others available. Over the decades, they’ve not only achieved that goal but surpassed it, becoming a global leader in the ammunition industry. From their revolutionary designs to their unwavering commitment to excellence, Hornady’s legacy is one of innovation and integrity.

As Hornady commemorates 75 years of excellence, they wanted to celebrate this momentous occasion in a meaningful way, not just for the company, but for the dedicated individuals who have contributed to its success over the years. That’s where our collaboration came into play. 

At C. Forbes, Inc., we specialize in creating custom commemorative items that capture the essence of an organization’s history and achievements. When Hornady approached us to design a commemorative coin for their 75th anniversary, we were thrilled to take on the challenge.

The 75th Anniversary Commemorative Coin we created for Hornady is more than just a token of appreciation; it’s a symbol of the dedication and passion that have fueled the company’s success for three-quarters of a century. Crafted with precision and attention to detail, the coin encapsulates the essence of Hornady’s legacy, featuring iconic imagery and symbolism that pay homage to its rich history.

But what truly sets this commemorative coin apart is how Hornady chose to distribute it. Rather than keeping it exclusive to top executives or selling it to collectors, Hornady decided to distribute the coins to their employees and industry partners as a gesture of gratitude for their hard work and dedication. 

Each coin serves as a tangible reminder of the role every individual has played in shaping Hornady’s success story. It’s a testament to their commitment to fostering a culture of appreciation and recognition—a culture that has undoubtedly contributed to their longevity and success.
