Lapel pins, badges, medals, emblems and patches can signify one’s membership to an organization by looking only at their collars and their clothes, but military men have their own unique way of telling that a man is an outstanding soldier or that he is part of a unit- and that is by producing a challenge coin. It is a small round disc, often being smaller than an inch in diameter to having three inches in diameter; containing a unit’s emblem or a department’s insignia, and shown during challenges to avoid paying a beer or two.
Following Are The Significance Of Custom Challenge Coins :
Military challenge coins are often placed in pockets or in wallets so they would be easy to produce when a challenge occurs. However, not all persons in possession of challenge coins engage in coin checks or in challenges. Most people (who do not engage in such challenges) consider their challenge coins as personal mementos, tokens of hardship, sacrifice and success that needs caring for. Some people do not even consider their custom challenge coins as “challenge coins” in the first place, since they are tokens of recognition from the people a man met, the places a man has been and the units and departments a man has been stationed with.
These people consider their coins as information triggers that could remind them of what has happened and of what can happen. To these people, their coins do not simply mean they are known members of an organization, but they are successful in their endeavors. At Challenge Coins 4 Less, your mementos will be built to last, like your memories linked with them.
Non-military coins are slowly gaining popularity these days as these challenge coins are being used in the Police and Fire departments, in fraternities, in NASCAR and the NFL.

More and more people and organizations are hooked in this coin minting activity that even business corporations and companies like Harley-Davidson have their motorcyclists form one of their own to show that they have a bond like those who served in the militia, and that they are proud that they are known to have this particular motorcycle ownership.
