What is a Challenge Coin?

EMT produces thousands upon thousands of challenge coins each year. However, it wasn’t until two nights ago while watching an episode of Wahlburgers (and becoming increasingly hungry while doing so!) that I realized many people may not even know what a challenge coin is.

An article by Mental Floss titled, “A Brief History of Challenge Coins” does an excellent job of discussing both the origin and evolution of challenge coins throughout time. Having been brought into existence by military organizations, the challenge coin has remained a way for different organizations to show their dedication to their members, and also a means by which those members to show their dedication to and pride for the organization and their specific rank within it.  Different coins signify different things. Often times the meaning of a specific coin is secretive and sometimes even unknown to lower ranking group members.

Aside from military organizations, challenge coins also play a large role in the gaming and souvenier industries.  These coins are usually very budget friendly to produce, but carry a high perceived value for gifiting or resale. Challenge coins are easy to transport and offer a unique way to display a logo and or message through a variety of different imprint methods.

Though typically 1 1/2″ to 2″ in size, challenge coins can be cast in all shapes and sizes.  In addition to the coin itself, there are a variety of options available to both protect and display challenge coins. These cases and stands add only a minimal additional cost to the item itself, while ensuring that the coin will retain both its finish and value for years to come.
