Military Challenge Coins

There’s nothing quite like the classics, and in challenge coins, military is where it all got started. Today, challenge coins have spread out to just about every profession imaginable, but nothing tops the coins created for the brave men and women who started it all.

Getting Started on the Perfect Military Coin Design

Custom military coins come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes and are used across every branch of service. As the best challenge coin company in the country, our Signature Coins team has worked with soldiers stationed all over the world. Whether you’re a member of a Marine detachment at the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi, a commanding officer at Fort Bragg, or anyone else in between, we’ve got you covered.

The Different Styles of Military Challenge Coins

Looking at a handful of unit coins from each branch of service is enough to see the difference in styles throughout the military. Army challenge coins are more likely to have custom shapes and dual functions like bottle opener cut outs, while custom Marine Corps challenge coins are generally more conservative, always making room for the famous eagle, globe and anchor emblem. There are always going to be exceptions to these rules, but it just goes to show that each branch of service has a distinct style when it comes to creating custom military coins.

Custom Army coins are often inspired by a unit’s mascot or emblem, giving them a unique sense of personality. Soldiers carry these coins with pride as a source of identity and camaraderie with their fellow teammates. While soldiers all throughout the Army work together and share common goals, coins like these celebrate what makes a team unique.

Air Force Challenge coins have been a central part of every Airman’s journey since 1947 when the Air Force became a stand-alone service branch. After basic training, recruits are given an Airman’s coin and addressed as Ariman for the first time. While the coin design has changed over the years, it’s importance as the first step in service remains the same. After receiving their first coin at the end of basic training, Airmen are introduced to all kinds of different custom Air Force coins earned through service and excellence.

The United States Navy has ships spread across every ocean of the world. Sailors find themselves at sea for months at a time, but they find a home away from home aboard their vessel. It’s for this reason that so many Navy coins include different ships in the design. Officers sometimes have their own personal coins created that they hand out as a sign of respect and honor to the sailors under their command. No matter what kind of design is pressed into the coin face, all Navy challenge coins are carried with pride.

Marines have a reputation around the globe as an elite fighting force. Semper Fidelis, meaning always faithful, is the motto that every Marine lives by and is present in almost all the Marine challenge coins we help design. Custom Marine Corps challenge coins are often made for individual teams, but they have a strong connection to the Corps as a whole thanks to the Marine Corps emblem included in each design.
