What is the Typical Size of a Custom Challenge Coin?

Posted by Signature Coins | December 9, 2010 at 2:50pm | Topic: Challenge Coin Design

The best size for your custom challenge coin depends on how you plan to use it. A standard sized coin is ideal if the purpose of the coin requires that it be easy to carry around. However, if you want a coin that is a little over-the top to display in your office or car our largest coin option is great too.

Typical and Large Challenge Coins Sizes

Signature Coins most commonly fulfills orders for 1.5”, 1.75” and 2” sizes. Custom coins created in either of these dimensions are small enough to keep in your pocket or wallet for easy access.

You should also know that we do not stop at the challenge coin sizes listed above. We will also make coins as large as 4.5”. This larger coin will make the details in your challenge coin design really stand out.

Both the typical and large sized challenge coins are perfect for sharing with others as:

  • Holiday Ornaments

  • Commemorative Tokens

  • Party Favors or Prizes

  • Keepsakes and Gifts

Extra Large Personalized Coins

We will make coins even larger if you want to create something that is really eye catching. Coins that are bigger than 4.5” are sometimes referred to as car badges. We suggest using these extra-large coins as stationary display items because their size makes them awkward to handle and carry around.

Ordering the Right Size Challenge Coin

Something else to consider when determining the size of your challenge coin is its challenge coin design. Choosing too small or large of a coin surface can easily take away from the quality of its appearance.
