Custom Challenge Coins in the News

August 3rd, 2011

Custom challenge coins have been making headlines all across the nation.  From fundraising events to military ceremonies, it appears that America can’t get enough of these versatile items.  Skim newspapers in every state and you’ll read about law enforcement organizing 5k run/walks and families creating custom coins to help pay for medical costs for their sick loved ones.  That’s one of the things that make challenge coins so special.  They are respected by everyone that knows their story.

Since World War I, receiving a challenge coin has been considered an honor.  The recipient of the coin is often known as someone who demonstrates incredible amounts of courage, determination, honor, and personal excellence.  The same can be said when coins are created for memorials and remembrance ceremonies.  The people that they are made for are or were exceptionally brave individuals.

The challenge coin craze has been extended to businesses, organizations, and groups outside of the military.  News stories reflect this each and every day.  Part of the appeal of these promotional items has to do with the fact that from start to finish, they are created with the customer in mind.  That means that when you order custom coins, you get exactly what you envision.  From the size, shape, style, and colors that you choose, your items are exactly the way that you want them to be.

If you want them to be a shape other than round, all you have to do is ask.  If you want them to be dual plated, just let your sales representative know via email or toll-free telephone call.  Like the look of a 3D image, just mention it when you place your order.  When you go to place your order, just let Signature Coins know what type of idea or concept that you are trying to achieve.

Custom Challenge Coins Help Stomp Out Hunger

June 10th, 2011

Non-profit organizations committed to stomping out hunger have found challenge coins to be valuable tools for a number of reasons.  First and foremost, they have higher perceived value than other types of giveaway items which make them memorable.  People are less likely to misplace or throw away something like a challenge coin.  That means that the message included on these custom coins can make an impact for years to come.

Next, they are double sided which gives them more room for the intended message.  One side of the coin can feature details about the charity and the other side can include a message about its mission or special event.  This is a great way to get others in the community involved in the fight against hunger.  All they have to do is look at the challenge coin to be reminded to donate time or money.

Last but not least, challenge coins can be passed from one person to another.  This makes them perfect for rallies and other types of events throughout the year.  Because they are portable and attractive, they draw attention wherever they go.  People will see the challenge coin and want to know more about it.  This is one of the most effective ways for charities to fundraise quickly and effectively.

Things That Can Be Included in a Fundraising Challenge Coin Design

Non-profits and charitable organizations can include the following in their challenge coin design if they are interested in doing so:

  • An image or photograph.
  • Text, a logo, a quote or mission statement.
  • A URL, an email address or a phone number.
  • Decorative edges.
  • Sequential numbering.
  • Dual plating.
  • 3D images.
  • Glow-in-the-Dark enamel.
