Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) Creates Challenge Coins for Graduation

Posted by Signature Coins | January 2, 2012 at 11:18am | Topic: Air Force Challenge Coins

The Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) was founded in 1948. Its mission is to Fly, Fight, and Win in air, space, and cyberspace. Consisting of 33 flying wings, 12 flying groups, and 1 space wing, the AFRC has several core values including “Integrity First,” “Service Before Self,” and “Excellence in All We Do”.

We were recently contact by the AFRC. They wanted a special challenge coin created that reflected their rich history and values. Using their design ideas, we were able to come up with a design featuring custom artwork that was unique and memorable. This gives recipients of the custom coins something to look back on and remember the time that they spent with the Air Force Reserve Command.
