Dog Tag Shaped Challenge Coins Demonstrate Military Pride

Posted by Signature Coins | November 5, 2010 at 10:17am | Topic: Challenge Coins Shaped Like Dog Tags

For decades, military units have been honoring exceptional individuals with challenge coins. These tokens of appreciation serve as a symbol of hope during difficult times. Not only do they reward stellar efforts, they also encourage teamwork, leadership, and perseverance. Recipients of challenge coins often feel a sense of pride in a job well done when they are given a challenge coin for a reward.

Custom Shapes Make Appealing Challenge Coins

Although challenge coins are traditionally round, we can create them in any shape requested. One of our most popular shapes is that of the dog tag. There are a number of reasons why military units like these challenge coins so much. A few of the things that we have heard from our customers include:

  • They can be worn around the neck like real dog tags.

  • They can be traded with other units as a way of establishing camaraderie.

  • They are easy to transport from one location to the next.

  • They can be used as identification.

  • They can be customized in any way that you see fit.

  • They are a great way to display military pride.

Dog tag shaped challenge coins make great gifts for members of the military and their families. In addition to all of the benefits listed above, they can be created with your own personal artwork as a way of making them even more collectible.

Decorative edges and 3D emblems are a few of the ways that we help our customer’s coins stand out. Glow-in-the-dark enamel and glitter can also accentuate artwork and add excitement to the challenge coin’s design.
