Frequently Asked Questions

A festival coin is what? It is a coin composed of a metal like brass or zinc that has had gold, silver, or copper polished or aged onto it. The coin design often has artistic edges and vivid enamel colors. Coins are double-sided, unlike festival pins or patches, making them the ideal promotional item for dual branding, delivering various messages, giving away items, or supporting numerous entities. Compared to the money you carry with you in your pocket, our coins are often significantly larger. Our most popular coins start at 3 mm (nearly 1/8 of an inch) in thickness and range in size from 1.5″ to 2.0″, which refers to the diameter for round coins or length/width for custom-shaped coins.



A challenge coin is usually a metal coin or medallion with the symbol, emblem, or logo of an organization on it. Members of the organization carry the coin. Challenge coins were used by the military in the past, and service members would show them off to show that they were part of an exclusive group and to boost the morale of their military units.

In the past, commanders of military units gave challenge coins to members who had done something special for the unit. People have also been known to trade and exchange them during trips to international organizations, bases, and service tours. Service members, both active and retired, as well as police officers have been collecting these coins for a long time.

Modern challenge coins come in different sizes and often have references to pop culture, like superheroes or parodies of well-known people. Today, many companies use them to boost team morale, connect people with similar interests, and even promote their brand. Today’s challenge coin designs push the limits of what a challenge coin can be and what it can be used for. One thing is for sure: personalized coins make the bond between the people who give and receive them even stronger.



Challenge coins are often used as a tangible token or symbol to signify affiliation with a group, unit, or team.

Anyone who receives a challenge coin also receives a lifelong personal recognition. Challenge coins are a good way to remember the time and experience it took to overcome significant challenges or the tremendous effort and sacrifice required to attain a goal since they are unique and long-lasting. These memento coins serve as a permanent memory of the accomplishments.

Challenge coins may also serve as a memento to mark an important occasion or anniversary. Here you may see a selection of our commemorative coins.

Challenge coins have also been used by some of our bravest first responder agencies in the past. Challenge coins have been used to recognize courage, acts of heroism, and department camaraderie for firefighters, EMTs, and police enforcement personnel.

Today, a lot of veteran-owned or veteran-founded firms are starting to employ the challenge coin tradition to help symbolize their corporate successes. The traditionalists have voiced some criticism of this contemporary method of giving challenge coins. Since Signature Coins has been manufacturing challenge coins for more than 20 years, we have seen an increase in the number of businesses giving out personalized challenge coins to clients, employees, and volunteers. They use them to boost company morale, connect individuals with shared interests, and even advertise their brands or charitable organizations.


A3: Generally speaking, you gift a challenge coin to someone to recognize their excellent behavior or dedication.

The military still uses challenge coins extensively today, much like a “Thank you Plus” or “Great Job Plus.” In the military, not every deed merits a commendable medal or certificate. When someone deserves more than a simple thank you, a challenge coin fills the void.

as a pretty basic military illustration. You’re on a three-day field operation. During a particularly grueling couple of hours of it, one of your men or girls bursts their butt. a great attitude, made an effort, and was excellent all around. Even while it wouldn’t “quite” be “award worthy,” it deserved “recognition” if you attempted to write it up.

Now, even if you are not a veteran or active service member, you can still honor and acknowledge someone with a personalized challenge coin.

Challenge coins may be given to staff as a reward for finishing a specific project or for making significant company-wide achievements. The coin’s design may reflect an accomplishment, an individual employee, or the objectives of the business. According to studies, when workers are commended for a job well done, they are more likely to be loyal to their employers, feel more happy with their job performance, and strive for greater objectives.


A4: Giving someone a challenge coin at the appropriate time and location might be difficult.

There are many methods to approach this accolade in military tradition. One of them was “The Secret Handshake,” in which the president, department heads, or commanding commanders would shake a soldier’s hand and “slip” them the penny. Transferring the currency shouldn’t be too dramatic or evident; rather, it should be done with a modest wink and nod. This accolade should be less formal and more personal to the persons receiving it. Another military custom is to distribute them in front of a formation or at a meeting, but it’s a little more noticeable; often, it’s done one-on-one.

As challenge coins are used by more people and companies, giving them has become more formal and inclusive. Most organizations will do so during a team meeting when presenting a challenge coin to an employee or team member. Some companies have even included their yearly and quarterly ceremonies into their employee award recognition programs. A wonderful approach to demonstrate to the rest of the team that you too can be “recognized” if the effort is there is to present awards to your staff in front of other team members.

Many high end service providers, including attorneys, accountants, and commercial developers, are now dispensing their custom coins as a method of advertising themselves or their company products. Today’s marketers have discovered that customized challenge coins also make excellent business cards.



Although creating challenge coins is a lot of fun, there are many considerations to make beforehand. Fortunately, we’ve made bespoke coins for many years, and we’re pleased to assist you at every stage.

Festival Coins are highly sought for!

A challenge coin is a coin with a special design that represents a group or event. When you get a challenge coin, it shows that you are a member of a certain group and honors the actions of the person who gave it to you.

Coin Depot provides:

  • Long lasting products.
  • Low production costs.
  • Small minimum order
  • Quantities.
  • Fast shipping.

Challenge coins are a way to say thank you instead of giving ribbons or medals. It has been a way for soldiers and first responders to honor their service for a long time. Some businesses started using them to boost morale. People use them to promote their own brands, and charities use them to give out prizes or remember a fundraiser.

Custom challenge Coin Designs

Use custom coins as collector’s items that show off your artistic skills for a more creative approach.

A great custom coin always starts with a design that stands out, whether it’s a simple logo or a complicated piece of art.

You can do anything you want with Coin Depot. Choose us to make your custom medallions no matter what the event is.

We work with you to make sure that the design meets your needs. You tell us what you want, and our graphic artists use their skills to make medallions for your business, non-profit, sports team, or educational institute.

On a full-color digital proof, you’ll see your design come to life. Once you give us the go-ahead, we send your medallions to our production department to be made.


Once you’re happy with your design, a computer makes a mold. This is then pressed into the metal to make the coin’s raised and lowered parts.

The gold, silver, or another plating you choose is put on the base of the coin.

The raised areas made by the metal outlines in the design stage are then filled with colored enamel paint (or translucent colors, which look great!). The raised areas are separated by the recessed areas.

The enamel paint is put on the areas that aren’t flat. After the enamel is baked and dried, the coin’s colors actually sit a little bit lower than the raised metal areas, giving the finished coin a clear outline.
