The 2012 Commandant’s Marine Corps Birthday Ball will be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland on November 10th, 2012. Many Marine Corps units create custom challenge coins to celebrate this momentous occasion. We work with these members of the military to come up with a design that is outstanding in appearance, memorable, and relevant.

Military coins are rich in sentiment and symbolism. Emblazoned with the Marine Corps insignia and pertinent information about the ball, custom coins can be classic or ornate. They can have a decorative edge encircling their design. We offer Bezel Edges, Oblique Line Edges, Cross Cut Edges, and Rope Edges. Each has its own distinct look that can help capture the theme and spirit of your Marine Corps unit.

We also offer 3D images. This is a great way to show off detailed mascots, insignias, and emblems. If you want to make your coins collector’s items, consider having them sequentially numbered. Doing this will raise their perceived value and make Marines cherish them even more.

Custom coins are the type of award item that people enjoy and want to share with others. Don’t forget presentation options like velvet boxes, acrylic coin cases, and plastic stands.
