Creating Challenge Coins

Creating Challenge Coins is not difficult it’s just that the logo and the text on the coin should be checked and proofread again and again before giving a final verdict so that there is no mistake in the coin. Having free quotations gives the client a better idea of what he has to do.

There are three basic steps that need to be followed by the client and the minter together to avoid any kind of problems:

i)             The first step is to design both the sides of the coin on a paper or get them designed by your maker. Once the design is approved the size, color and other small details regarding the coin should be done accordingly.

ii)            The paper copy of the coin should be checked and rechecked again and again for any kind of problems. Once the details are finalized a dummy coin is created to check the whole thing again.

iii)           The last thing is to get the whole stock done in time and shipped to the client by the minter who has been in touch with the client over phone, email and other telecommunication systems.

By following these three basic steps all kinds of problems related to the creation of a coin can be avoided.

Along with the coins there are several kinds of ribbons that are used to put the coin through and tie these challenge coins around the neck. These ribbons also depict the different causes of the challenge coins which serve different purposes that mainly include:

  1. Mourning
  2. Hope
  3. Cancer
  4. Organ donor
  5. Abuse
  6. AIDS
  7. Brave
  8. Pride

And several other feelings which are clearly depicted through the different colors so that all those present at the ceremony that gives out the Custom Challenge Coins get to know what the coin depicts for the other person.

The Red color of the ribbon shows that the ribbon is for any kind of disease including AIDS, heart disease, etc. When put through a challenge coin it stands for the love of the organization for their officer/worker.

The orange color ribbon is specially given out to the brave Highway and Road worker who may have lost his life or suffered an accident. The color depicts the love and respect for the hard work.

Yellow colored ribbons show the support for the troops who work hard on the borders. They are awarded the ribbons to show the appreciation and love of the public for their extraordinary efforts of staying away from their loved ones to protect the borders of their country.

The black colored ribbon is for the mourning color and tied around the coin of those who have lost their lives in some act of bravery saving lives of many. With black there are other colors also attached to show that the one who has lost his life holds a high place in the hearts of the others.

Almost every color stands for something or the other and one should check out the importance of the color before attaching it to challenge coins as many ribbons are just for different illnesses and supporting against the cause of them.
