NYPD Custom Challenge Coins

Do Your Officers Have Their Own Challenge Coins?


Courtesy. Professionalism. Respect. Those are the words commonly emblazoned on the sides of NYPD patrol cars. And it’s those ideals that set the NYPD apart from other law enforcement organizations in the country. As the largest municipal police department in the U.S., the challenges facing the NYPD are unique. It’s only by being courteous, professional and respectful that the NYPD has been able to so impressively handle those unique challenges. Such a special law enforcement branch deserves Police challenge coins that are every bit as unique as the men and women offering their service within it. 

At Signature Coins, we’ve been lucky enough to provide law enforcement agencies with their own custom challenge coins for over 15 years. In that span of time, we’ve gotten to know a lot about the lives, challenges, and rewards of our nation’s amazing first responders. It’s with a great respect and appreciation to our men and women in blue that we offer top-tier customer service, high-quality final products and a 100% Quality Guarantee. If the men and women in your unit don’t have New York Police Department Challenge Coins of their own, contact us today so we can get to work immediately and get your custom coins delivered in 14 days or fewer. 

What Are NYPD Challenge Coins?

With over 55,000 service men and women, New York Police Department challenge coins are the perfect way to build unity and a sense of inclusion amongst officers. Born of the military tradition, challenge coins have long been a way to mark career milestones and reward the exceptional service of first responders. Keeping a city safe and orderly is a hard work, and the men and women who do it go above and beyond each shift. Being recognized by their captains and other supervisors goes a long way towards keeping their morale up. 

In addition to boosting morale, the traditions surrounding challenge coins help to instill a sense of unity and cohesion amongst officers. Whenever an officer produces their coin, a challenge is initiated to the other officers. If anyone of those officers is incapable of producing their own custom challenge coin immediately, that officer has to buy drinks for the others. If, however, everyone produces their coins immediately, the challenging NYPD officer is forced to buy a round of drinks for everyone.

Customize Your Coins

A lot of Police challenge coins are ordered in our 1” - 3” traditional disc-shaped design. But the good news is they don’t have to be. With Signature Coins, every aspect of the design of your coin is in your hands. You make the final decision on everything including the look, color, size and shape of the coin. Want a coin that more closely resembles the outline of a police shield, or the classic NYPD logo? Simply give us a call at 1.800.953.3607 or fill out one of the quote request forms on this page and our specialist will be able to help you design the coin that’s right for you. 

In addition to those unique customization options, you’re also encouraged to choose:

  • 3D Options-- Lettering, logos or other design elements can all be done in 3D to elevate your coin to new heights.
  • Cutout Options-- A solid coin may be traditional, but a coin with cutouts can really stand out in a crowd.
  • Plating-- Would you prefer an antique gold, silver or copper plating for your custom coin? If you’re having a hard time choosing one option, you can always combine two.
  • Coin Edge-- From classically smooth to an intricate crosscut, there are six different options for the edge of your coin. You can even add sequential numbering for a truly unique option.
  • Silk Screen-- Let your coin maintain a perfectly smooth surface by silk screening your design’s colors onto the coin.
  • Epoxy Dome-- Some customers like the original feel of the metal on the coin, but if you want a glassy and smooth finish over one or both sides, choose the epoxy dome option.
