History of Challenge Coins

What started as a memento of serving together in WWI Army flying squadron, the “Challenge Coin” quickly became mandatory after it was used to prove a pilot’s identity after being shot down behind enemy lines. The challenge coin he carried with him saved him from incarceration or worse, certain death! After recognizing the military challenge coins, his captors were able to verify his identity. Once he was safely back at his squadron, it became a tradition to always carry your military challenge coins. The pilots often “challenged” each other to produce their military challenge coins. If they couldn’t produce custom challenge coins then they had to buy a drink for the challenger. If they could, the challenger bought the round, this came to be known as the Military challenge. Over 100 years later, Challenge Coins are used by all branches of the Federal Government Military, Police, Fire, Fraternal Organization, Air Force and Corporations worldwide. They are used as a reward, award, corporate identifiers, and as morale building tools for heroes who risk their lives protecting others. Members of the US Armed Forces and air force have had a long-standing tradition of carrying military challenge coins that symbolize unit identity and brotherhood. The popularity of the military challenge coin tradition has evolved into more than just a mark of representation for military personnel.

We don’t claim to make the most coins, or the cheapest…Just some of the BEST!
