Round Challenge Coins

While there is nothing ordinary about a custom challenge coin, many of them share a few ordinary design queues like a round shape. There are all kinds of challenge coin shapes to work with, but creating a set of custom medallion coins is by far the most popular starting point for a coin design. You don’t need custom shaped challenge coins to create something more than an everyday keepsake. The round challenge coins we help design are all one-of-a-kind and sure to be a meaningful and memorable gift for your team.

Traditional Medallion Shaped Coins Are Anything But Ordinary

Round challenge coins may share a common shape, but each is defined by characteristics like plating, edging, color, size and artwork. They all have a unique personality and tell a different story. When it comes to free online coin designers, it’s impossible to beat what our Signature Coins art team can do with just a few of your ideas. By the time you see your first free proof of artwork, you’ll see that even a set of custom medallion coins can have just as much personality as any set of custom shaped challenge coins.

Picking the Right Options For Your Custom Medallion Coins

One of the first things to consider when looking for ways to set your round challenge coins apart is metal plating. Coin plating serves as the base for your artwork and sets the tone for any medallion shaped coin design. We offer a wide array of different plating options like precious metal plating, colored metal finishes and also have the ability to combine two or more different plating options to create a truly unique design.

The different variations of gold and silver plating are by far the most common, however, some of our team’s favorite coins are minted with the most underutilized plating options like antique copper and black nickel. But if you’re looking for ways to turn a common circular challenge coin design into something exciting and unique, picking the right metal plating is only the first step.

Translucent paint can take any regular medallion shaped coin design to the next level. Coins with high polish plating are especially suited for translucent colorfill because a small amount of light is able to pass through the enamel paint and let the metal underneath shine. The rich contrast in color and glossy appearance of these types of coins can transform an otherwise boring shape into an unforgettable design.

Deciding to create a 3D challenge coin is another way to make a custom medallion coin stand apart from the crowd. Both 2D challenge coins and 3D challenge coins offer plenty of room to create beautiful designs with a unique sense of character, but 3D challenge coins have more potential for layered artwork with realistic depth and detail. Combine one of our custom edging options to a 3D design and really take your circular challenge coin up a notch.

Something else to consider is that round challenge coins don’t have to be perfectly circular. We’ve created coins molded to look like wax seals that have authentic imperfections in shape as well as oval-shaped challenge coins. Some other ways to play with the shape of a round challenge coin are adding custom cut outs in the design. Functional bottle opener cut outs encourage the recipients of your coins to keep them close at all times while more intricate cut outs are used to accentuate a design.

Whether you choose to mix and match options like edging, 3D artwork and translucent paint in your design or you decide to play with the shape of a traditional circular challenge coin, adding a few upgrades to an ordinary custom medallion coin will turn it into something extraordinary.
