What are EMS Challenge Coins?

EMS challenge coins have evolved from the challenge coin tradition practiced through many branches of the US Military! No two groups or units have the same coin. Challenge coins are designed to be unique and to symbolize the individual team’s spirit, camaraderie, and dedication.

The challenge aspect of the coin come from units issuing challenges to the group at large, usually in a bar or restaurant. The challenger would take their coin and slap it down on the bar causing everyone else to produce their coin as fast as possible. Rules are different from group to group, however, you can generally expect to buy a round of drinks for your team if you do not have your coin with you. If everyone meets the requirement and slaps their challenge coin on the table, the challenger is responsible for a round!

The tradition has carried over into many branches of the Emergency Medical Service, and different teams of first responders use them as marks of distinction and team character.

We make creating custom challenge coins easy!

But we would prefer you hear it directly from other customers 😉

EMS Schools

Generally, first responders start their careers in the Emergency Medical Service as EMTs before becoming Paramedics. There are hundreds of EMS school across the country and many of these institutions require time spent as an EMT before admittance. Once in the program, students must pass the didactic, clinical, and field internship sections before graduation. It is definitely an uphill journey but also a rewarding experience for those dedicated enough to see it through! Commemorating a graduating class with a set of custom challenge coins is a fantastic way to add a personal touch to the ceremony.
