2D Challenge Coins  vs  3D Challenge Coins

ROTC

Standard 2D Challenge Coin

What is the difference?

Customers often wonder the difference between 2D and 3D challenge coins. We understand that the industry jargon can be confusing, but to keep things simple, 3d challenge coins allow for sculpture style relief, where the raised artwork has smooth transitions between details. 2D challenge coins have a raised flat feel where all the raised metal sits at the same height, they essentially have two levels of metal height, while 3D coins have unlimited levels of metal heights

GLOW IN THE DARK ENAMEL 

+0.20 PER SIDE/PER COIN

A lot of people think that adding glow enamel to a set of coins limits the colors that they can use, but this isn’t the case. We use enamel paint to add color to a coin and, to make the enamel glow, we add a special powder to the mix. This means that the color of the enamel can be any color you like, but when the lights are out, it will glow.

ANTIQUING EFFECT

This is by far our most popular coin feature, antique plating. Antique plating adds a level of contrast and "aging" that immediately makes your coin look timeless. Adding contrast between raised and recessed areas will also make any text on your coin easier to read.

We always recommend antique plating for no color designs. With the added contrast, your design is sure to stand out. All metal areas are dulled in the plating process when you choose antique, so your coin will have less noticeable scratches and dents as time goes on. Antique plating is a great choice for a classy but durable coin.
