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. 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.
“Death Smiles at Everyone . . . Marines Smile Back” is asserted on this menacing 1.75″ antique silver coin. The front of the coin features a 3D skull in combat gear and is flanked by handguns with surrounding bullets on a silver and black background. The reverse side of the coin is silver and black and features the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor. Smile in the face of death with this detailed challenge coin!
