Fire & Iron Challenge Coins

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Challenge Coins Plus has once again been commissioned to produce a coin for the Fire & Iron Motorcycle Club. This time it was for Station 88 out of Rock Hill, South Carolina. “Fire and Iron Firefighter’s MC is made up of Firefighter’s and other people associated with the Fire Service who love to ride and have a good time. Each member is an Active Full-Time/Career, Paid-On-Call, or Volunteer member of the Fire Service community.”

The club offers a sense of community for the men and women that call themselves members. In addition to their love for firefighting, their love for riding bikes is what sets them apart from others in their community. Each station has its own coin if it chooses to order one. The Fire & Iron MC logo is often included on the coins for identification purposes.

The traditional Fire & Iron logo is on one side of the coin pictured here. Station 88 specific information is on the reverse side of the coin. This allows each individual club to get the recognition that it deserves by showing affiliation with Fire & Iron but also representing its own logo, motto, and city. Customers can further personalize their coins by adding a decorative edge, a 3D emblem, sequential numbering, a bottle opener mechanism or dual plating. Each option makes coins attractive, meaningful, and memorable.
