How to Approach Making a Set of Custom Spinner Challenge Coins

The best way to make an interesting spinner coin is to consider how adding any sort of interactive element will elevate your coin design. A custom boot shaped challenge coin with a spinning heel spur is the perfect example of how to accentuate a design with a characteristic spinner, but there are countless other ideas like spinning globes, propellers and jet fighters that make for memorable designs.

Whether you need a set of military challenge coins, corporate challenge coins or any other type of design, adding a spinner that moves along with the theme of your design will take your coins to the next level.

Choosing the Right Type of Custom Spinner for Your Challenge Coin Design

There are two general styles of spinner coins to choose from: Internal spinners and floating spinners. In regard to challenge coin cost, they are considered the same, but each comes with advantages and disadvantages in style, functionality and aesthetic.
Internal spinners sit within a cut out portion of a challenge coin design. They can be large, taking up almost the entire design, or they can be relatively small. In either case, it’s important to remember that the spinner needs enough room to rotate freely. The smaller the cut out portion of the coin, the smaller the spinner will have to be. Smaller spinners rotate easily, but sometimes don’t have enough mass to spin quickly for a prolonged period of time. If you're looking for a spinner coin that spins quickly and easily, consider a design with a larger cut out and a heavier spinner.

All spinners are held in place by a pin that acts as the axis of rotation. In the case of internal spinners, the pin is usually aligned with the top and bottom of a coin and allows the spinner to rotate inside the cut out with a light flick. Floating spinners, on the other hand, are more like the hands of a clock. The spinner sits on top of the coin face and rotates clockwise and counterclockwise while the coin face stays still.

These types of spinners often take up a lot of space, obscuring the design of the coin face. This is why it’s so important to ensure a spinner adds to the theme of the artwork because it will no doubt be the centerpiece of the design.

While internal spinners and floating spinners help us categorize most of the spinner coins we help design, there are some designs that defy categorization. We are always on the lookout for new and interesting ideas for spinner coins. If you have an idea for your own unique spinner coin, give us a call today, and we’ll help bring that idea to life!

Getting Started on Your Own Set of Custom Spinner Challenge Coins

One of the first things to consider when you create a coin with moving parts is that the final design will require more than one coin mold. The coin itself will, of course, need a mold, but the spinner piece will also need a mold. Once each is finished, the two pieces are put together to form a finished spinner challenge coin. This makes custom spinner coins more expensive than your everyday challenge coin, but they are also so much more than your average challenge coin.
