Challenge Coins

with 3 comments

The more I research coins, the more I find out unique and interesting stories.  The Challenge Coin is a coin or medallion, bearing an organization’s insignia or emblem, usually military,  and carried by the organization’s members. They are given to prove membership when challenged, thus helping to create unity.  The origins of the coin are what stories are made of.   My friends at Challenge Coins have a great website dedicated to their passion of these coins.
