A United states Army National Guard Tradition.

Army National Guard Challenge Coins

Only the best challenge coins for your Army National Guard unit


Operating in all 50 states, the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia, the National Guard is an integral part of the U.S. military. Guard Soldiers operate mainly within their home state, standing ready to respond to the president or governor’s call to action. Members of the guard serve both their local communities and the country, responding to domestic emergencies, deploying on overseas combat, taking part in counterdrug efforts, and more. As with other branches in the military, service members in the Army National Guard are honored by their officers with challenge coins bearing the guard emblem and slogan ”Always Ready, Always There.” 

More than simple baubles, we understand each coin is unique to the crew or unit. With over 15 years of experience designing, crafting, and producing Army challenge coins, Signature Coins is ready to put our team of experienced artists and designers to work designing high-quality challenge coins to your exact needs. Our streamlined design process can have a client’s coin designed, and then delivered to a client’s location in 14 days or less.

What Are Army National Guard Challenge Coins?

A tradition said to have started during World War I, challenge coins are given to servicemembers by their officers in recognition of exceptional service or in honor of a major milestone in their career. The practice of giving a challenge coin for this purpose is ubiquitous throughout all branches of the U.S. military. Within the Army National Guard, challenge coins may be received after boot camp, after deploying with a team on a difficult mission, or in recognition of exceptional service in the line of duty.

All challenge coins are symbols of solidarity or respect, but their form has often evolved or changed over the years from a circular disc. Many remain disc-shaped coins, but they also take on shapes unique to their unit or group such as dog tags, emblems, or mascots. Some of our military clients ask us to include practical improvements to a challenge coin such as bottle openers or screwdrivers.

Custom Army National Guard Challenge Coin Options

At Signature Coins, we work with every client to make sure each order is designed exactly as desired. Whether you want to incorporate the Army National Guard seal, a unit slogan, or add a team mascot to a design, we can turn it into a high-quality product. Our design process includes unique customization options for just about every aspect of a coin including:

Shape and Size - Our coins can range anywhere from 1” to 3” in size. We recommend getting a coin at least 1.75” in size for the best balance between detail and cost.

Color - Either leave the coin in its natural metallic or have it painted with up to seven colors on either side from the full Pantone color spectrum.

Coin Edge - There are six different options to decorate the edge of every coin, providing a unique look and feel to each order.

Plating - Have your coin plated in antique gold, silver, or copper to highlight details or choose to double plate a coin in two different metals to create and highlight key details.

3D Coins - Have details or elements of a design such as an emblem, slogan, or illustration literally pop or standoff a coin’s surface by ordering a 3D coin.

Offset Printing - Offset printing creates an exact replica of an image or photograph on the surface of your coin.

Silk Screen - Let your coin maintain a perfectly smooth coin surface by silk screening your design’s colors onto the coin.

Epoxy Dome - Create a glassy and smooth finish over one or both sides of a coin with an epoxy dome.
