Custom Coin Shapes Add a New Dimension to Military Designs

Since World War I, custom challenge coins have been used to honor good deeds.  Members of the military that show exceptional character and perform heroic acts are richly rewarded with a gift of gratitude.  These tokens of appreciation are almost always in the form of the challenge coin.  Symbolic in nature and full of personal meaning, they are the type of memento that everyone can appreciate.

Custom challenge coins can be made in any shape imaginable which adds to the overall design and giving the keepsake item a truly unique appearance.  As you can see from the picture featured here, the customer that contacted us requested a special triangle shape for the unit’s custom coins.  We were more than happy to honor the request and encourage our customers to infuse their creativity in the design ideas that they submit to us.  This adds to the attractiveness of the coins and makes them have higher perceived value than other types of award items.

Different sizes and types of plating make a dynamic and unique design.  When combined with antique plating and color fills, challenge coins become a work of art that lasts a lifetime.  Members of the different branches of the military proudly display their gifts in velvet boxes and coin capsules.  This helps protect the challenge coins and also makes great presentation options at awards ceremonies and other military events.

If you want an item that impresses day-in and day-out, you’ll consider creating custom challenge coins in different sizes and shapes.  You can also make them even more attractive by adding a custom edge, 3D molded image or sequential numbers on them.  With Signature Pins help, the sky is virtually the limit.
