Creative Shapes Make Your Custom Coin Stand Out

Don't forget, custom coins aren't limited to just round shapes

When we think of coins of any sort, we think of circular metal objects. However, when it comes to custom challenge coins, you can create a design in nearly any shape or size. When designing a custom challenge coin, you want your design to stand out.

The goal is to create a work of art that can be presented with pride and passed along. You may already have an idea  what you want your coin to say, its size, and the art. A custom shaped coin will enhance the design even more. The classic round coin will always look terrific, but we have some innovative ways to make your custom challenge coin different and unique. 

For example, coins in the shape of your state or country can demonstrate your state or national pride. These coins are ideal for military coin designs as well, whether you want to show your roots or even honor the country of deployment.

Another popular choice is  shapes that lend themselves to the tools of the trade. No matter what field you are in, there are tools you use on a regular basis. These can be police badges, computers, a sledgehammer, a stethoscope, a telephone and more. The most popular examples of these designs designs can be seen in police, fire, and military coins.

Transportation and related machinery are an excellent shape for Navy coins, Air Force coins, and Army coins. Some of the most popular shapes in these categories are planes, submarines, ships, tanks, and more. 

Want to add even more personality to your coin? Create something in the shape of your favorite fictional characters, cartoon characters, famous heroes or other meaningful people or beings. Custom shapes add personality and detail, and adding a familiar design is sure to elevate your coin to new heights. 

Animal shapes are also a popular option. Lions, tigers, snakes, and spiders are common shapes for coins, adding a unique, eye-catching appeal. There are many, many options when it comes to the animal kingdom, and they certainly grab our attention.
