A great touch to your challenge coin design is to use two different platings on one coin. The majority of coins are plated in one color which is gold, silver or copper. Dual plating gives coins a distinctive look which is classic and visually appealing.
There are many times a coin design is best suited to be done in gold, but the design has some silver highlights. Instead of using a paint to mimic the silver areas, we can actually plate those areas in silver. This adds to the appeal of the custom made challenge coin by making it even more attractive.
Dual Plating Combinations Offer Plenty of Choices
There are many combinations to choose from. For example, many customers choose silver and gold, silver and copper or gold and silver. One of the most unique plating combinations is the use of both black nickel and gold on the same challenge coin. This color combination really has great contrast.
Outstanding Challenge Coin Designs Require Thinking Outside the Box
A perfect example is a challenge coin produced for one of the Flight classes out of Maxwell AFB. They wanted a black nickel coin. However, the coin design includes a 2D Lt bar that must be done in gold. Instead of using a gold paint to color the Lt bar, we plated the bar in high polished gold. The result is one outstanding challenge coin.
