Why You Should Get Challenge Coins
We must first give you a brief history of challenge coins. They have a colorful history, as colorful as the vibrant inks embellishing their die-cast sides.
Initially, challenge coins were used in the military, as a means of identifying members of a particular squad or battalion. The various groups would normally have their own respective names and emblems, which would be cast on coins given to their members. Legend has it that these challenge coins had saved a good number of soldiers who found themselves behind enemy lines, and wanting of any identification. Eventually, as wars declined, challenge coins found themselves being given to members of the armed service as recognition for outstanding achievements. At present, even non-military units, such as corporations, are giving away challenge coins to their outstanding employees, or are being collected by numismatists.
If you are a member of the armed service, a corporation, or of any other organization, you have to have challenge coins.
1. Military Camaraderie
As mentioned, challenge coins were used as a means of identifying membership by a serviceman in his crew or unit. But, knowing the jolly and cheery nature of the brotherhood, the soldiers have found another use for these coins. They were used during challenges, when any one soldier can challenge the entire pub (for it is in this kind of places that challenges usually happen) to produce their challenge coins. Anyone failing to produce his coin, right then and there, would have to buy the challenger a drink. If, however, everyone was able to produce their coins, the challenging soldier has to buy the whole room a drink. Sounds fun, doesn’t it? We, at www.ChallengeCoins4Less.com, know that very well – the camaraderie shared by past and present members of the service. You can have challenge coins to commemorate those memories, to serve as an insignia of your proud unit and special fraternity.
2. Corporate Pride
If you are in a corporation, challenge coins would be wonderful rewards for your outstanding employees. Unlike certificates, challenge coins provide a lasting feeling of pride for its bearers. And, unlike trophies, their small size makes them portable and readily available as they can be comfortably kept inside one’s pocket.
3. Organization’s Identification and Membership
You do not have to be a member of the armed service or a corporation to have a challenge coin. If you have an organization, you would do well to have a challenge coin to provide an inspiring reminder to your members about your group’s principles and purpose. The rich history of the challenge coins would be enough source of pride and motivation.
