Process: Our process is designed to work around your needs. We guide you in creating the initial design if needed, or we can work with you to perfect a pre-existing design idea you might have. Once you approve a final design, it is die-struck into thick bronze or copper, and both the front and back of the coin are struck at the same time. Our experienced staff can give you suggestions to enhance or modify your design as needed in order to ensure that your design is most suitable for production. According to your final design specifications, the coins are then electroplated (see our available custom coin finishes) sandblasted, and polished. Though all color is added individually by hand, hard enamel color is added pre polishing, while soft enamel is added after polishing.

We have produced some of the most inspiring military coins and challenge coins for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, EMS, Fire and Police Departments around the United States of America, as well as for many agencies abroad. Many of our corporate customers have employed performance and project recognition programs, commemorating important milestones or the completion of a momentous project with custom coins designed by Monterey’s expert team.

Insights and Ideas!
Custom Challenge Coins:

Honoring Our Soon To Be Law Enforcers with Challenge coins come with a long time honored tradition and culture. Part of the military for ages, challenge coins are made for special units and to commemorate a particular job well done. It’s no wonder that the pride affiliation that comes with having ones very own challenge coin, is something that is passed on to police department’s Junior Trooper programs. It is truly awe inspiriting when you see adolescents go through the program and then at the end receive their very own challenge coin. It drives home the honor of being part of such a team in a way that nothing else does. The coin of course, becomes a cherished possession for a life time.
