Challenge Coins Reward Program Participants for Completing Courses

January 27th, 2012

Custom challenge coins have been adopted by colleges, universities, and trade schools as a gift to hand out upon a program’s completion.  These highly regarded pieces of memorabilia are symbolic in nature because they resemble currency or medallions which are thought to be honorable and valuable.  Students feel a sense of accomplishment when receiving this type of award.

Challenge coins are the perfect giveaway item for a number of different reasons.  First and foremost, they are large enough to feature a complex design as well as text.  This is especially true because custom coins have two sides to work with.  If a school decides to use both sides of a double sided challenge coin, they can customize one with the school’s information and the other with the class or program’s information.  This allows each year’s coins to be relevant and personal.

Custom made challenge coins serve as great incentives for everyone involved in a program.  Individuals strive to be their personal best and meet course objectives.  They also try their skills at being leaders which can be beneficial when applied to their personal lives and professional careers.

A reward item that is meaningful and attractive, a challenge coin makes people excited about what they are doing.  This gives them the initiative to complete whatever tasks life throws at them.  It teaches them lessons about determination and perseverance.

Including Custom Challenge Coins in Your School’s Time Capsule

August 29th, 2011

For many students, a rite of passage is creating a time capsule, filling it with memorabilia, and burying it in a location where it can be dug up at a later date.  This is great activity for elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and colleges because it allows young people to see how much the world has changed over the course of a decade or two.  Custom challenge coins created specifically for this purpose can include important information about the year that they were produced, the school that created them, and the class that chose to include them in their time capsule.

Digging Up Memories By Excavating Challenge Coins

At a reunion, the challenge coins can be divvied up among classmates.  This makes a memorable souvenir for everyone to enjoy.  In fact, the longer they remain in the capsule, the more collectible they become.  Who doesn’t like a souvenir that actually means something?  Students that want a memento from their past will love the idea of placing challenge coins in their time capsule.  They’ll love receiving the coins at a later date even more.

Making Your Coins Personal and Memorable

Challenge coins are custom which means that they can be designed in whatever way that you see fit.  You can personalize their size and shape.  You can even opt to have a 3D image incorporated into the design or have sequential numbering added as a way of increasing the coin’s perceived value.  This allows your students to get the most out of their custom coins when they finally decide to remove them from the time capsule.
