Celebrating the Army’s 237th Birthday Today with Custom Challenge Coins

June 14th, 2012

Today marks the 237th birthday of the United States Army.  To celebrate the occasion, we wanted to take a moment to salute the men and women of this branch of the military and the work that they do day in and day out.  According to the Army’s website, the occasion “commemorates America’s Army-Soldiers, families, and civilians-who are achieving a level of excellence that is truly Army Strong.”

Custom challenge coins have long been a part of military history.  We have had the distinct honor of working with army units from around the world to capture moments in time, reward heroic efforts, and provide them with a keepsake from their tours overseas.  Being able to work alongside these heroic men and women has been pivotal for us and that’s why we wanted to take a moment to wish the US Army a happy 237th birthday.  We look forward to being a part of many celebrations following this one.

A custom challenge coins is a notable award to receive for a number of different reasons.  First and foremost, it is personal and distinct.  No two military units have the exact same challenge coins created.  Next, the keepsakes are weighted and made of metal.  This gives people the impression that they are worth more than other types of award items.  Last but not least, the coins are easy to transport, store, and display.  Recipients of a custom challenge coin can share them with others.

Celebrate your milestone event by contacting Signature Coins.  We’ll be more than happy to help you come up with a design that is worthy of your celebration.  Visit today.  You can also submit your inquiries to or call 1-800-953-3607 toll-free.
