Fraternal Order of Police Commemorates Special Anniversary with Custom Challenge Coins

January 4th, 2012

Special milestone events require special gift items to hand out.  That’s why the Fraternal Order of Police contacted us last year with a request for custom challenge coins.  These small tokens of appreciation were created in time for the organization’s 75th anniversary. It was our pleasure helping them come up with a design that they would be proud to show off.  As pictured here, you can see that a lot of time and effort went into creating this amazing and memorable custom made challenge coin.

The Fraternal Order of Police challenge coin has a design on both the front and back side of the memento.  The front side specifically states what lodge is celebrating the anniversary.  You can look at the top of the coin to see that it is the Lima Lodge #21 that commissioned the coins.  Next, you see an image of a rose and a blue ribbon along with the letters “F” “O” “P” which stand for Fraternal Order of Police.  There are also the words, “75 Years”.  Below this is the exact date the Lima Lodge was founded.  Last but not least, the years 1935 and 2010 are represented on the coin.  This shows what dates the milestone event takes place.

If you’re getting ready to celebrate a special anniversary, you can create a custom challenge coin for all your members.  This token of appreciation will go a long way to boost morale.  It can make your business or organization more efficient and productive.

You can also give challenge coins to all your donors as a way of showing appreciation for their time and financial contribution.  Custom challenge coins can be presented in a velvet box or acrylic coin case at an awards ceremony or banquet.  This is a great way to celebrate special events like 75th anniversaries.

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.

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.
