What better way to reward these brave men and women than with a custom challenge coins that shows how much the department and their community appreciate the work they do.

Rutherford County Sheriff Department did just that. We produced challenge coins for them that feature the badges worn by all the officers on one side. We were able to add dual plating of gold and silver to the badge side of the challenge coins since the badge worn by the Rutherford County Sheriff deputies is plated in both gold and silver plating. They wanted to make sure the badge on their challenge coins was as close to an exact match to the actual badge.

The reverse side of the challenge coins is a beautiful 3D mold of the patron saint of law enforcement, St. Michael.  3D molding is a great way to make your custom challenge coins stand out.  They help give designs dimension and make them visually attractive.  The same can be said about decorative edges.  Items like these add to the overall design of a custom challenge coin.

Dallas Police Department Uses Challenge Coins to Dedicate Headquarters

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Police challenge coins come in many different shapes and sizes.  The Dallas PD contacted us and asked if we could help design a coin for the dedication of their new headquarters.  They really wanted an accurate picture of their new building to be displayed on their dedication coins.  We suggested using a high resolution photograph to achieve the look that they were after.

The front of the challenge coin is very traditional in that it has raised gold areas and recessed color enamel areas.  The front will have depth to it whereas the back will be smooth because of the epoxy that we cover printed photographs with.  The bezel edge of this coin immediately adds detail and intrigue to this coin.

In addition to the bezel edge, this coin has both silver plating and gold plating which adds an elegant touch.  Police coins are often times used in dedications like this, or as a way to identify a sub group in the force, or even as a way to honor a fallen officer.  Memorial challenge coins are very popular these days.  They are great for honoring exceptional individuals and the role that they played in the police force.

Family members, colleagues, and even members of the community appreciate having something concrete that they can look at to remember their loved ones and the lives that he or she touched.  Longer lasting than a t-shirt or sticker, they can be presented at a ceremony in an acrylic coin case or velvet box.

Custom challenge coins come in a variety of sizes, shapes, styles and colors.  They can include different types of decorative edges, 3D emblems, sequential numbering, dual plating, and even bottle opener mechanisms.  This allows customers to make their custom coins every bit as unique as they are.

Whatever the reason is, we hope you will give us a call or email us to discuss how we may help you with your next challenge coin project.  Visit  You can also email or call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.


Police Challenge Coins for Pipes and Drums Band

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Founded in 1999, the Pipes and Drums of the Chicago Police Department is a not-for-profit Police Bagpipe and Drum band. The mission of the group is simple. It is to “Honor Our Fallen” comrades, their families and friends in their time of need. The band has been privileged to participate in the honor ceremonies of their own fallen heroes as well as police officers and firefighters across the Midwest.

We recently created custom challenge coins for our customer, the Chicago Police Force Bagpipe and Drums Band. Each member of the band is an active officer. Their main goal is to honor and support the family and friends of police officers that have lost their life. Through competitions where they showcase their talents, they are able to spread their message and make a mark on their hometowns and surrounding communities.

Trading Coins with Other Bands is a Tradition

Custom challenge coins are handed out and traded with other bagpipe and drum bands from around the country. Police coins like these are gaining popularity because they give each distinct group within the police force a chance to own a personal coin that is custom made for the group. With so many different teams in the force, coins are a universal piece of memorial that ties all its members together.

Different Types of Metal Add to the Look and Appeal of Challenge Coins

A unique finish can be found on the backside of this coin. The brushed recessed metal was a specific request made by the band to help achieve a distinct look that they were going for. A more common finish for recessed areas would be textured metal or even smooth metal.

Different textures add a certain quality to challenge coins and give their recipients the feeling that they are valued. 3D images, sequential numbering, dual plating, and custom edges also highlight a custom coin’s unique artwork. These are options that we offer our customers that help add to their appeal. Coins with higher perceived value are the first to be traded at events.
