What is a challenge coin?
Only the finest materials create the US military challenge coins or commanders coins
The armed forces have used the custom coin for challenge and recognition for generations. A US military challenge coin is designed as a limited edition coins that are generally given for participation in operations, as recognition of achievement, and award or trophy for qualifying for an elite team or squad. US military challenge coins had their beginnings in world war one when a wealthily airman had coins made for his fellow aircrew. The coin challenge was started when at the pub these airmen would challenge each other to show they had their coins in possession, if they did not they bought the beer. If all the members had their coins the one who challenged buys the round of cheer.
We use custom made die molds to strike our armed forces challenge coins. A die struck coin has superior detail to a die cast coin. Generally we use bronze coin blanks for our coin production.
