Police Officer Memorial Challenge Coins Are Very Popular

November 3rd, 2011

Memorial challenge coins for fallen police officers are growing in popularity.  Family members, friends, and work colleagues appreciate having a memento that reminds them of their loved one.  Challenge coins are perfect for this reason because they are customized according to our customer’s specifications.  That means that every fallen officer is represented on their coins in a real and authentic way.

Memorial Coins Are Handed Out At Memorial Services and Award Ceremonies

Custom coins can be handed out at memorial services and award ceremonies.  This gives the community an opportunity to remember the officer and his or her contributions to the department in which he or she worked.  It also helps raise awareness about the different roles that an officer plays in a city.

Offset Printed Challenge Coins Are Great for Pictures and Exact Images

Many memorial challenge coins utilize offset printing.  This makes it easy to place a photograph onto the coin.  A real image of the fallen officer is poignant for people in the community because it reminds them of the great sacrifices members of the police force make to protect and serve.  People will never forget the impact that the officer had on those around them.

Challenge Coins Used to Commemorate Fallen Soldiers

September 13th, 2011

The New York Post just reported that a soldier killed in Baghdad’s family decided to honor their lost loved one by creating something he loved in honor of his service to the military.  They decided to contact a challenge coin company with their request for a custom challenge coin commemorating the 27 year old’s life. Army Staff Sgt. James McNaughton was the first NYPD officer killed in Iraq.

The coins were stamped with the soldier’s photograph and date of death.  Details like these are important in preserving a family’s personal history.  More often than expected, new customers come to us because they can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to their lost loved one.

Memorial coins are growing in popularity for a number of reasons.  Here are a few for you to think about:

  • Custom coins are portable. They can be carried around in a pocket or purse where they are easily accessible. This allows them to be shown to others quickly and easily.
  • Custom coins are durable. The challenge coins are made out of quality materials which make them last a long time.  When stored in a presentation bag or case, they are protected from dust, dirt, and grime.
  • Custom coins are personal. Like the example listed above, custom challenge coins are rich in meaning.  They are designed with a group or individual in mind.  In the case of the example listed above, the coins contained a picture and an important date.

Custom challenge coins can be made in any size, shape, color or style.  They can have custom edges, 3D emblems, and even be dual plated.  Coins can be single or double sided.  Some customers prefer to have their design on one side and leave the other side blank.  Others like to extend their message to both sides of the coin.

Whatever your preference may be, we can create memorial challenge coins to fit your needs.  Visit today.  You can also call 1-800-953-3607 toll-free or email  We’ll be more than happy to honor your request for memorial coins.
