Retirement Challenge Coins Are a Memorable Way to Mark the End of a Career

August 29, 2011 by lapelpinsplus

More and more, we are designing challenge coins to mark the retirement of our customers.  They contact us from all walks of life, whether from the corporate world, the armed forces or police and fire departments, everyone is getting in on the action.  No one wants to leave the workforce without a personal memento reminding them of the type of work that they did and the type of sacrifices that they made.

Challenge Coins Make the Perfect Gift for Guests At Retirement Parties

We are finding that at the retirement parties, the honoree is handing out a gift to his or her guests.  Challenge coins make the perfect gift for situations like this because of their affordability, their customization options, and their ability to showcase meaningful images and text.  In fact, they have higher perceived value than many other types of memorabilia.  That’s because of their distinct look and weightiness.  A person can hold a challenge coin in his or her hand and know they are getting something amazing.

Common Themes Bond Retirement Coins Together

Retirement coins seem to share some common themes like incorporating the retiree’s name, the company they worked for, and the dates that they served the company.  This helps add to the personal history of the coins and is ultimately what makes them so unique.  People that attended the retirement party will always have something to look back on to remind them of the years that they spent with their family member or friend.

Custom Shapes to Fit the Retiree’s Personality

As you can see here, retirement coins don’t have to always be perfectly round.  They can be a unique shape that is significant to the company or department that the retiree is from.  This customer was part of the world famous black eagles so the significance of the shape is evident.
