ARMY CHALLENGE COINS GALLERY

You'll never forget the first time a General planted a custom challenge coin in the palm of your hand right before embarking on a mission, or after showing exceptional valor and skill in the line of duty. It's a sign of respect and appreciation, and a valuable token of goodwill from one Soldier to another.

But they're more than just a symbol and time-honored tradition. They're a way of keeping you focused on your training, your tools and skills, and the mission your country is counting on you to accomplish. With every new custom US Army Challenge Coin minted and given comes a new promise, and the renewal of the Army pledge: "This We'll Defend."

THE EVOLUTION OF MODERN MILITARY CHALLENGE COIN AWARDS

About a decade ago, the Challenge Coin industry got a wake-up call.

Up until then, challenge coins were made in the classic, antique style, which was great for some folks, but others found them to be Round, flat, and empty.

People started asking for a little more spice, originality, and bold designs in their new custom coins. That's when clients started to bring us more complex ideas. Instead of refusing to take on the projects as most other companies did, we embraced the challenge. 

"Adapt and overcome." It's in the spirit of every custom Army challenge coin we produce.

But most importantly, what did our clients think?
