Custom Challenge Coins

  • Custom Challenge Coins

Where did the tradition begin?

Challenge Coins started as a military custom in World War I. These coins were given to members of an American volunteer flying squadron by their Lieutenant or Commander. Legend states that one squadron member was captured by the French, but his life was spared when his medallion (Challenge Coin) was noticed by his captors. A tradition was born after WWI and each squadron member carried a challenge coin. Upon greeting another member, they had to produce their coin. If the member could not produce a coin he would buy a drink of choice for the other “winning” member. The Challenge Coins created at PinOutlet.com are of exceptional quality, and are designed to last a lifetime, to carry on the memories of those whom they represent.

Who uses challenge coins?

Although they were conceived and implemented in the military, the honored tradition of challenge coins continues today among a wide variety of groups such as:
