July 30th is fast approaching and you want to have custom challenge coins on time for National Support Public Education Day.  The annual initiative commends educators and schools for the role they play in shaping young people’s futures.  You can encourage the teachers and staff at your academic institution by creating custom challenge coins for the awards ceremony you hold in their honor.  Employee recognition award programs are a great way to boost morale, encourage teamwork, and pay tribute to rising stars in your community.

  • Unusual sizes and shapes
  • Decorative edges

Celebrating the Army’s 237th Birthday Today with Custom Challenge Coins

June 14th, 2012

Today marks the 237th birthday of the United States Army.  To celebrate the occasion, we wanted to take a moment to salute the men and women of this branch of the military and the work that they do day in and day out.  According to the Army’s website, the occasion “commemorates America’s Army-Soldiers, families, and civilians-who are achieving a level of excellence that is truly Army Strong.”

Custom challenge coins have long been a part of military history.  We have had the distinct honor of working with army units from around the world to capture moments in time, reward heroic efforts, and provide them with a keepsake from their tours overseas.  Being able to work alongside these heroic men and women has been pivotal for us and that’s why we wanted to take a moment to wish the US Army a happy 237th birthday.  We look forward to being a part of many celebrations following this one.

A custom challenge coins is a notable award to receive for a number of different reasons.  First and foremost, it is personal and distinct.  No two military units have the exact same challenge coins created.  Next, the keepsakes are weighted and made of metal.  This gives people the impression that they are worth more than other types of award items.  Last but not least, the coins are easy to transport, store, and display.  Recipients of a custom challenge coin can share them with others.

Celebrate your milestone event by contacting Signature Coins.  We’ll be more than happy to help you come up with a design that is worthy of your celebration.  Visit today.  You can also submit your inquiries to or call 1-800-953-3607 toll-free.

Four Ways to Get Others to Take Notice of Your Custom Challenge Coins

June 5th, 2012

Custom challenge coins grab people’s attention.  Their unique design and colorful history make them appealing to all age groups and despite being something popular with the different branches of the military, the versatile items are also well received by businesses, academic institutes, organizations, and clubs.

We have the luxury of working with customers in every industry.  Challenge coins play an important role in these men and women’s lives.  In addition to rewarding heroic deeds and exemplary work ethic, custom challenge coins can educate, promote, and foster goodwill between two nations.

Here are four ways to get others to take notice of your custom challenge coins:

  1. Pick a theme and stick to it. If your challenge coins are part of an employee recognition award program, make sure that others can recognize that by looking at them.  If they’re used to promote a new product that you’re launching online, it helps to include a website address on the coins so others know how to find you.
  2. Go with an unusual shape, size or style. Think outside the box and create custom challenge coins that are bottle openers or medallions.  Opt to cut out areas inside the design.  Add a spinning piece to the middle.  Whatever you envision, we can create.
  3. Think about what others will find visually appealing. Add a decorative edge, a 3D image or sequential numbering on your order of custom challenge coins as a way to make them stand out.
  4. Make your image and text stand out. Branding is an important part of marketing.  If you want others to recognize your name, your logo or slogan should be on your custom challenge coins.
