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.
For the men and women of the US Marine Corps, the mission will never full be finished until all those who wear the uniform return home from duty.
Holding steadfast to a solemn oath, they refuse to abandon their comrades-in-arms to an uncertain fate. Fighting to secure their homecoming and uphold their honor, they carry the cause of freedom to every corner of the globe, battling America’s enemies in the name of their fellow warriors. As they continue the fight on near and distant shores, they inspire us all to stand watch with them until every American warrior has been recovered.
This coin is dedicated to the uncompromising vigilance and tireless dedication of all those who keep watch for America’s unsung heroes. The obverse features a rendering of the POW-MIA emblem, which contains a silhouetted warrior standing with his head slightly bowed in the shadow of a guard tower. The reverse bears the official seal of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Minted in a brass alloy, the obverse is hand-enameled in black, bringing the image of the missing prisoner into bold relief. The reverse contains a full color rendering of the U.S. Marine Corps Seal. Each coin comes packaged with a detailed header card that describes the mission and history of the U.S. Marine Corps.

One of my favorite challenge coins was passed around and prayed over before giving it to me. Imagine that. Everyone there held it in their hand and said a prayer for me. You know I still have that one.
This one is as great quality as any I have received. If you are dissatisfied with it in ANY way, return it to us in new, resalable condition for a merchandise refund. (By the way, this is our policy on EVERYTHING we offer.)
“Today, we understand that peace through strength is more than a slogan. In a world such as ours, it’s a moral necessity, and in the tough job of preserving the peace and defending our nation’s independence and freedom, the U.S. Marines have always been there, ready to do their duty.”
