Challenge Coin Ideas

A few ideas when creating your artwork. You may want to consider adding color to your coin design, with both hard and soft enamel color options available to you. Soft enamel color fills into the raised and recessed areas of the metal, creating unique dimension and feel. Hard enamel color, on the other hand, is lifted to the same level as the rest of the coin, creating a glassy, smooth finish, perfect for certain images. And with nearly endless colors from which to choose, you are likely to achieve the exact color effect you are after.

When working with our artists, they’ll discuss the different finishing options available to you, like sandblasting and polishing and will make recommendations based on what materials, styles, and textures they think will best bring your design to life. Once your art proof is complete, the Monterey Company will send you a complimentary proof of your ideas, ensuring there are no surprises when it comes to the quality of your product. Once the proof is approved, we will begin the production process, creating your customized mold, and your die-struck coins in weeks.

What is a police challenge coin?

Homeland Security Law Enforcement Coins

How Police Coins are used today:

Police coins represent the bravery and resolve necessary for being in law enforcement, for protecting the public at all costs, sometimes even against the value of one’s own life. Law enforcement may not be a topic that everyone understands, but it is one that affects all of our lives on a daily basis. We are safe because the members of law enforcement are doing their jobs right. If you are a police chief or a leader on the team, law enforcement coins are a perfect way to reward your crews’ hard work and relentless dedication for preserving the public’s safety.

Custom police challenge coins encourage and instill feelings of pride and honor, demonstrating that even through times of hardship, struggle, or devastation, good virtue will persevere and be rewarded with more than just a “thank you.” Because, when members of law enforcement are encouraged to continue doing their jobs well and with integrity, we all get to live our lives with the comfort and peace that comes from knowing we are being protected.

Specifically, managers and executive officers within police departments use coins in a variety of ways, gifting them to members within their departments, and even within their communities. Custom Law Enforcement coins are used to commemorate a courageous act, to memorialize dedication and service, to honor years in service, and to acknowledge outstanding achievements. They are used to boost pride and honor within a team and encourage the collective camaraderie that comes from being a part of something greater than themselves. Additionally, they are used as a fundraising tool for charities, raising money in a unique and profound way.

Fundraising is difficult, as encouraging others to share their money is a challenge, even for the best of causes. But supporting law enforcement is a worthwhile investment, as it is directly promoting the wellbeing of the community. The people that dedicate their lives to maintaining the safety in the spaces we exist in are important to the prosperity of this country, and it is all of our responsibility to keep it alive.

Using coins as a fundraising tool affords people the opportunity to demonstrate the pride and ownership they feel for being a member of a community that supports the members that protect them. And because they are often reserved to recognize exceptional acts, to encourage donations expresses gratitude in a way that other tokens or memorabilia simply can’t achieve.

Police coins for your next event.

Members of law enforcement are asked on a daily basis to put the needs and safety of the public in front of their own, making them some of the most worthy people of recognition. This recognition should extend beyond the thanks of the people whom they protect, also coming directly from the people who serve alongside and above them.

Like in the military, police challenge coins are growing in their prevalence within law enforcement, and are gifted as a way to recognize members of police departments who dedicate their lives to assisting and preserving the safety of their communities. These coins are awarded to recognize outstanding and selfless acts, to boost morale within a department, to instill a sense of pride and membership within their team, and to encourage the exceptional work worthy of acknowledgment by project managers and executive officers.
