Memorial Challenge Coins Honor Those That We Have Lost

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Far too often we lose friends and family.  Whether it be an accident, a war casualty or because of illness, death is part our lives.  For a lot of motorcycle clubs, the best way to honor a lost friend is to make a custom challenge coin in their honor.   Military men and women practice this same tribute when there is a fallen soldier in their unit.

Remembering with Personalized Quotes and Sayings

With our challenge coins, we have the ability to incorporate a favorite picture of your loved one on the coin itself.  We do this through a process called offset printing.  Other ways to remember lost ones is to include a favorite saying that they had or include a quote that represents how you feel about them.

Motorcycle Clubs Pay Tribute by Holding Rides for Lost Members

Motorcycle clubs often have “rides” for their lost brothers/sisters and this is where the custom coins are handed out.  Usually the ride information is on one side of the coin and the dedication to the lost one is on the other side.  This allows members of the group to have an item that reminds them of their friend that they can keep with them at all times.

Dog Tag Shaped Challenge Coins Honor Military Loved Ones

Military dog tags are also a way to honor a loved one.  Information usually included on the custom shaped challenge coins includes:

  • The branch of service
  • The unit
  • The date that they were killed in action

Challenge Coins for Co-Workers or Beloved Teachers

You don’t have to be in one of the two groups listed above.  Challenge coins can be handed out for co-workers, or maybe a beloved teacher at a university.  Our ability to customize makes it easy to put together a coin that honors the memory of our loved ones.

Being able to honor the memory of our lost loved ones is an important part of the grieving process.  Although other types of memorial items exist.  None have the same type of impact that custom challenge coins do.  Designed in a way to pay tribute to the people that mean the most to us, memorial coins are growing in popularity each and every day.
