Custom Challenge Coins
Military challenge coins have been around since the first World War. During that time air warfare was a new concept. Air squadrons were manned by men from all walks of life, unlike earlier wars when the militia was manned from the working class.
As the story goes, one wealthy lieutenant had a custom coin created for his squadron as a memento of their service together. One of the soldiers, never having had anything of value in his life, became so attached to it that he took to wearing it in a pouch around his neck for safekeeping. It ended up saving his life after being captured behind enemy lines. When the French took the German camp all
he had to identify himself as an ally was the squadron coin. Thus began the tradition of carrying one’s squadron coin at all times for recognition and identification.
