Challenge Coins are metal coins that come in various sizes, shapes, and styles that are typically awarded to an individual for excellence, special achievement, or any other reason deemed worthy by the presenter.
Challenge Coins are also used in various ways to boost morale, create camaraderie, motivate, inspire, special occasions, and remembrance, even as a business card that will never get tossed away.
