Custom Challenge Coins Honor Veterans Every Day of the Year

June 3rd, 2011

Custom challenge coins honor Veterans every day of the year.  In fact, the popular tokens of appreciation are awarded at different events not just Veteran’s Day celebrations.  Made from durable materials and customized in a way that speaks to their owners, they are one of the best awards a group or organization can give to past and present military men and women.

Challenge Coins Are Highly Regarded

Due in part to their rich military history, challenge coins are highly regarded.  In addition to nearly 100 years of use, these collectible items honor bravery, teamwork, valor, and dedication.  They also serve as keepsakes for service men and women.  All a Veteran has to do is look at the challenge coin and be reminded of the time that they spent in the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force or Marine Corps.

Challenge Coins Are Durable and Portable

Challenge coins are long lasting and portable.  That means that Veterans can continue to take part in “challenges” wherever they go.  We sell plastic coin capsules that help protect the challenge coin from wear and tear.  Because it surrounds the coin and is see-through, people can view the images included on it without removing the coin from the case.

Challenge Coins Are Custom

One of the biggest selling points of challenge coins is that they are custom.  What that means is this.  You get to design them the way that you want them created.  If you have a special message that you want to deliver to Veterans, consider it done.  If you want your coins to be dog tag shaped, that’s another possibility.  We can accommodate any request you might have for smaller, larger, cut out, and dual plated challenge coins.

We can also feature whatever image that you want included on the coins.  This can be a logo, graphic or photograph.  You can even incorporate multiple images because custom challenge coins are double sided.  That gives you twice the amount of space to get your message across.

One phone call or email to Signature Coins is enough to get the process started.  Or, if you would rather, you can visit today and request a free quote through our submission form or call 1-800-953-3607 toll free.

Dog Tag Shaped Challenge Coins Demonstrate Military Pride

November 5th, 2010

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.

APO, FPO and DPO Orders Welcome

We are accustomed to taking orders from military bases worldwide.  If you have an APO, FPO or DPO address, feel free to give us a call or drop us a line.  Although it requires an additional fee, we are able to ship directly to you.  This makes it easier for you to have your dog tag shaped challenge coins when you need them.
