Coins for Anything

I did a post on Challenge Coins a ways back and received a comment asking where one could have these kinds of coins made.  While searching the inter-web I came across a company that can do just that, Coins for Anything Inc. is your go to place to get that special coin made for any occasion.  They strive for complete customer satisfaction, and will do a digital image of your coin for free.  I hope to have a few coins of my own made one of these days, after all this is The|Coinologist.
