Challenge Coin History

As we make coins for different units, we come across a lot of information concerning the history of challenge coins. What has been interesting is that the different services have about the same symbolic meaning of military coins, but there are different stories that have started these traditions. If anyone has more to add to this page, let us know, and we will add it. Enjoy these following stories.
