FBI Challenge Coins
The Highest Quality Coins for the Highest Quality Special Agents
The coins pictured here were created for the FBI’s New York office and given to members of their 2018 internship program. We are honored knowing that these are the first challenge coins earned by a few future members of the FBI, and hope that they will always be cherished as a symbol of their personal achievements and their bright futures.
Custom coins like these are collected after crucial points in a special agent’s career like promotions, successful missions, celebrations and even for small steps like completing an internship program. When all is said and done, a personal collection is a narrative of your service in the Bureau. Each one tells a special story and has value so much more than just the precious metal plating the coin. They are earned through struggle and conflict, but also through excellence. They symbolize your right to be a member of the FBI and your ability to serve our nation with distinction.
We understand the importance of creating meaningful, high-quality designs that do justice in representing the Bureau and the men and women who serve the United States, and it shows in our work. We take pride in every project and work carefully with each client to ensure each coin comes out perfectly suited for their needs. If you are looking for a set of custom coins for your team, you have come to the right place.
Creating Custom Coins With Authentic FBI Designs
Our design team can recreate the FBI seal with complete accuracy. As you can see, we are careful not to miss a single piece of the familiar seal and even use the standard 281C Pantone blue paint to ensure every coin matches the Bureau's established image down to the smallest decimal.
All three coins pictured above are plated with high polish gold. The addition of the blue colorfill in each seal adds a pleasant contrast to the raised metal lettering and ensures each word is highly legible. Besides for the entire Pantone color wheel and a variety of metal plating choices, we offer customizable options like edging, sequential numbering, 3D and 2D design and so much more. You can choose to make traditional designs that incorporate the Bureau's seal, or you can change up the formula and make something a little more unique like this coin we created for a Special Agent Bomb Technician in Miami.
This design keeps the famous FBI blue and gold colors but takes a more personal approach to the artwork. While no bomb technician ever wants to see an explosion like this in real life, you can’t deny that the nuclear trefoil set against a massive mushroom cloud definitely captures the idea of their profession. Whatever you’re looking for in custom design, our team is sure to bring your inspirations to life and add a little personality to your coins. Just send us your ideas, and we will be happy to get started.

Adding Personality to Your Custom Designs
According to the FBI, the agency employs over 35,000 people in a variety of different roles operating all over the country. With this large scale comes an equal number of unique opportunities to create meaningful and personal designs that capture the spirit of a team. You can design something for an internship program like the New York office has done in the past, for a team of seasoned special agents, or for any of the roles in between.
To see how different a pair of FBI challenge coins can be, all you need to do is take a look at a few examples. These coins were created for teams in Memphis Tennesee and New Jersey. Not only is the artwork different, but the colors, sizes and shapes are different. The license plate design uses an intricate 3D mold to recreate the badges and New Jersy outline on the back whereas the Memphis coin only uses a 2D design. Be that as is may, both coins have a distinct personality, and show how much is possible in design with just a little imagination.
No two coins are the same, and the process of creating an original design is simple and fun. As long as you know something about your team, you have enough information to make something special. The FBI is broken up into branches like National Security, Intelligence, Science and Technology and even Human Resources. Each branch and each team has their own history, and coins are minted to reflect their character and heritage.
Even simple design cues like inspirational quotes or mission statements can make a difference in how a coin makes people feel. This coin, for example, has a famous Theodore Roosevelt quote as well as a passage from Proverbs. The raised lettering on the back is set against a textured gold plating which helps make the text more legible against the bright metal and also adds a unique feel to the back of the coin. While the seal on the front side is smooth to the touch, the flip side has a more grainy, textured feel.
These were given out to remind people of their responsibilities to our nation and the importance of their work. The FBI is full of men and women who never back down and stop at nothing to make sure the job gets done right. When designs are made with a specific team in mind, they become a small piece of shared identity. Unique designs like these are only made possible by including some personal touches that define the team members all throughout the Bureau.
