In 1961, the Institute of Heraldry developed a design of a device of unofficial use, which is the Agency seal we use today.
The front of the Agency coin displays our logo and core values. The torch symbolizes knowledge and enlightenment; the laurel symbolizes strength, accomplishment and victory; the blue border emphasizes loyalty and steadfastness. Together, these symbols represent our loyal commitment to serve the Army by employing a workforce of intelligent, dedicated professionals who provide insight and value through our audit reports. Service, Ethics and Progress are our core values.
The back of the coin describes the locations where Army auditors have gone to conduct audits in service to the Army. Serving the American Soldier has been the heart of our mission since the Agency was established by executive order in 1946. The world map represents our commitment to join Soldiers in service throughout the world. The Department of the Army logo represents who we are and what we do: We are the Army's internal auditors, serving American Soldiers, civilians, and their families; Army leaders; and our Nation.
