Types of Custom Military Coins
Air Force Coins
Air Force challenge coins are custom-made coins that bear the logo or emblem of a particular squadron. As custom commands, affiliates of a particular squadron carry the coin in order to prove membership when challenged.
We can help you create a unique Air Force Squadron coin with impressive 3D detailing. All you need to do is provide us with a photograph of the aircraft you want to represent on your air force challenge coin and our artists will bring it to life. Be sure to check out our gallery to see examples of our past work for Air Force challenge coins.
Army challenge coins are specialized custom-made coins bearing the insignia or emblem of a particular squadron or unit of the U.S. Army. The significance of the coins pertains to a legend dating back to World War I. So strong is the resulting tradition that, nearly a century later, military personnel habitually carry their military challenge coins with them.

How Do I Determine What Type of Military Challenge Coin Design to Make?
Designs on military challenge coins have become increasingly extraordinary as designers are employing methods like splash minting. Splash minting can create scenes that look life-like. This type of military challenge coin even appears to show movement.
The method of splash minting enlists the use of special dies. These dies allow excess metal to splash out in a sideways direction when the coin is struck. Once this is done, the excess metal left behind by the strike is shaved off, leaving a relief that is elegant, striking and memorable.
