Challenge coins have a long-standing history of being symbols of achievement and membership. However, like any object, it's reasonable to take these coins for granted eventually.
Answering a few questions can bring context and regality to any type of coin, especially a custom coin presented for a special achievement. Challenge coins can be crafted in an array of shapes and sizes, customized to your liking to celebrate special milestones, events, and more.
While folks do take their coins for granted occasionally, they are worth holding on to, as you never know what the future may hold.
For example, the world's most expensive coin ever made was the Flowing Hair Dollar. This coin was minted in 1794 and priced at $7.85 million, which is enough to make anyone think twice about being careless with coins.
The oldest coin ever made was found in Efesos, an ancient Hellenistic city in Asia Minor. The coin is believed to be 2,700 years old. The design includes an engraved lion's head and is made of electrum.
But the world's most renowned coin ever made is the 1804 silver dollar, which wasn’t actually minted until 1854. The creation of this coin is quite an interesting tale that includes Andrew Jackson, Asian kings, corrupt Mint employees, and other incredible circumstances. The coin is a forgery of a coin that mistakenly got made and is now considered authentic for collectors around the world.
Last but not least, the most famous coin found in movies would have to be Two-Face’s vandalized coin in the Batman franchise. These iconic coins are just some of the more famous examples of challenge coins and another example of how they can be used to celebrate achievements.
