What is a challenge coin? A challenge coin is a small coin or medallion (usually military), bearing an organizations insignia or emblem and carried by the organization’s members. Traditionally, they are given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale. In addition, they are also collected by service members. In practice, challenge coins are normally presented by unit commanders in recognition of special achievement by a member of the unit.
The CEO of Survivors Edge received his first challenge coin while serving in the United States Marine Corps back in the early 80’s. Now he carries one every day from wife. It’s a “Pride, Commitment, Service” fireman’s coin by Northwest Territorial Mint. Whether in his turnout gear for fires, or station gear for medical calls, it’s in his left front pocket. It reminds him of the love, care and honor his wife has for him, as well as prayers for his safe return. It’s just a coin. It has no magical powers. But give one of these to someone you hold close in your heart, and it will become infinitely much more powerful than a round piece of metal.
In Ephesians 4:2 the apostle Paul teaches that love of Christ is not inconsistent with – and is indeed essential to – love of all kinds, including that between husband and wife. Marriage is blessed by the Lord, and succeeds because the Lord is part of the union. All that is necessary is that we are humble, gentle, and patient with the one we love. This smart medallion announces that commitment.
Coins, medallions, and other gifts and symbols have long been important to any wedding ceremony. The English sixpence in the shoe; the Polish shower of coins; and the Persian bowl of silver coins are just a handful of the wedding traditions in which coins symbolize joining together and a wish for prosperity. When united with Christ in marriage, any couple has a perfect beginning.
For those who witness the happiness of your ceremony or revel in it from afar, this medallion embodies your commitment and the beauty of your relationship with the recipient. The United in Christ wedding medallion sentiment will represent your bond as a couple and proclaim your belief in Christ to all of your supporters, and features a place for personalization, enabling you to memorialize your thanks and your happiness.
