If you do not know, a challenge coin is a small coin or medallion, bearing an organization’s insignia or emblem and carried by the organization’s members. Traditionally, they might be given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale. They are also collected by service members and law enforcement personnel. Historically, challenge coins were presented by unit commanders in recognition of special achievement by a member of the unit. They could also be exchanged in recognition of visits to an organization.
The challenge coin specifics:
- diameter: 44mm
- thickness: 3.5mm
- weight: 34.4 grams
This coin will make a great addition to your collection and pairs well with a new Marathon Watch Company watch 😺👍
