Challenge Coins are now increasingly more popular with departments, academic institutions, teams, and organizations, and emergency services of all sizes while remaining as prominent as ever in the military.
One of the first custom shapes that gained popularity after the traditional circular challenge coin was the dog tag challenge coin. These typically have a hole so they can be worn with the military issued dog tags (or put on a keychain). Add your own photos/graphics!
One of the most popular coin styles available is our custom designed Bottle Openers. These typically have a hole so they can be put on a keychain or carried in your pocket.
Whether for a marathon, adventure race, academic achievement, or police or military award, custom medals are a great way to publicly and tangibly recognize and commemorate achievement.

Since the early 1930s, custom Challenge Coins have been used to promote friendships, strengthen bonds, and recognize success. For a nearly a century, military personnel have created personalized Challenge Coins and used them to raise awareness and funds, educate the public about pressing issues, and honor exceptional individuals within a unit in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard.
Challenge Coins are a physical symbol of appreciation and recognition of a job well done or exemplary service. Coins are no longer exclusively used by the military. They are now very popular with dispatchers, firefighters, law enforcement, EMS, correctional facilities, schools and universities, sports and academic teams, businesses, and organizations in addition to the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard. The highly personalized nature of custom Challenge Coins makes them the ideal for everything from a unit's achievement medal to a corporate marketing tool. They encourage teamwork and promote camaraderie as well.
