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.

Pittsburgh Police Creates Their Own Unique Custom Challenge Coins

December 6th, 2010

When it comes to promoting your local police department or precinct there are few better ways to do so than through the creation of custom challenge coins.  These items embody the qualities of resilience and dependability which make them ideal representations for any law enforcement or security organization.

Pittsburgh Police contacted Signature Coins to have their custom coin needs met.  The protectors of “a most livable city” recognized police coins as a unique and creative way to show pride in their unit. Because of this, we gladly fulfilled their request to create law enforcement coins for one of their many divisions.

Law Enforcement Coins Offer Police Officers Valuable Usage

Presentations and award ceremonies held by or for the police division benefit from having challenge coins created  to distribute as a reminder that the time and effort officers put in is genuinely appreciated.

When officers visit neighborhood schools or community events, the custom challenge coins help students and members of the community identify and remember their local precinct. This can be extremely helpful during times of need because people are more likely to ask for help when they are acquainted with the local police department.

Small enough to fit in your pocket, challenge coins can easily be taken everywhere officers go and used as a show piece during off duty times.

The Right Challenge Coin Manufacturer Makes All the Difference

When it comes to producing challenge coins, we have the years of industry knowledge and experience that guarantees our clients always receive a coin that lives up to their expectations and reputation.

The Pittsburgh Police coin was designed to include our dual plating option.  Using two types of metal in the design gives the coin a layered and unique look.  In addition to the dual plating, we also gave the customer their choice of:

  • Custom Artwork and graphics along with a digital proof of the finished coin.  You can either rely on one of our talented graphic artists or provide your own artwork. We will incorporate the design elements you request, furnish a digital proof via email, and make as many revisions as you want at no additional cost.
  • Text and Phrases that can be tailored to the coin’s purpose. Customized challenge coins give their creators the freedom to say what they want to say in any manner that they choose.  Including relevant dates, phone numbers, or mottos on the coin will engage recipients and add meaning.
  • Shape and Colors to ensure the coin was one-of-a-kind. Custom coins do not have to be round.  They are available in a wide assortment of shapes including be square, triangle or rectangle shapes.  Backgrounds, text and accents can all be done in any combination our clients choose.

The reason behind your custom coin creation is just as important as working with the right challenge coin company.  Which manufacturer you choose makes all the difference in designing and producing high quality coins that you and the recipients are proud of.
