Custom Challenge Coins

The History of Military Challenge Coins

We offer custom challenge coins. The practice of holding these coins is debatable, but many believe it dates back to World War I. Legend has it that a soldier captured by the enemy escaped by passing himself off as a civilian. He was accosted by local forces who were told to be on the lookout for enemy soldiers masquerading as civilians. He had been stripped of all of his identifying credentials, but was also identified as an American soldier by producing a challenge coin.

How Challenge Coins Are Used Today

President Bill Clinton displayed several challenge coins given to him by service members. George W. Bush received a challenge coin from a marine patrol unit during a visit to an airbase in Iraq. Barack Obama placed challenge coins on the memorials to soldiers killed in the Fort Hood shooting.

The popularity of challenge coins is spreading outside of the military. NASCAR, the NFL and a number of police and fire departments and fraternal organizations are increasingly obtaining and using challenge coins.
