  • What Is the Origin of Military Challenge Coins?

    The term challenge coin has multiple origin stories, all filled with rich military history. In addition to the U.S. Army Air Service story, wherein U.S. Army Air Service volunteers were the first to receive challenge coins, another backstory dictates who picks up the tab. Military lore indicates that individuals would need to show a challenge coin to prove their association with the military. If you were challenged and did not have a coin to show your membership, you would have to buy the challenger a drink. This practice led to the term challenge coin, as members were challenged to prove their affiliation. The tradition of military challenge coins continues widely today and has even led some units to create their own custom challenge coins.

  • Can Civilians Make Custom Challenge Coins?

    Yes! While they may trace their history to the military, custom challenge coins aren't exclusive to military units; they've made their way into the business world as custom coins bearing a corporate logo and message. Many businesses and volunteer organizations now use custom challenge coins to commemorate anniversaries, recognize an achievement, or as trade show giveaways. Coins are a sign of membership and unity, and creating a custom challenge coin design for your organization makes them unique tokens.
