Shine With NASA Challenge Coins has worked with a wide range of distinguished customers for many years, offering exceptional custom challenge coins. One of our most valued customers is NASA, a distinguished agency with an incredible history. We take great pride in being given the opportunity to create NASA challenge coins. Let's take a look at some of the history of NASA itself.

NASA was first established in 1958 by the National Aeronautics and Space Act. The primary reason for the space agency was a reaction to the Soviet Union’s successful launch of its satellite, Sputnik 1.

NASA’S motto is “For the Benefit of All,” and that has always been the case. NASA's main partner for the last generation has actually been its former rival, Russia. NASA also partners with other nations.

NASA is also the only space agency to launch space missions to the outer solar system. Back in 2006 plans were announced to build a permanent moon base, though we're still waiting. Maybe they suffered from the 2009 housing market crash.

NASA headquarters are actually in Washington, D.C., and not in Houston as many believe. To date, NASA astronauts have brought back to Earth about 400 kilograms of lunar samples.

Despite the changing times and economic fluctuations, NASA is always reaching for the stars. Moreover, when it comes to choosing custom challenge coins, the space agency finds quite stellar.

For us, the opportunity to produce NASA challenge coins is an out of this world opportunity. We appreciate the chance to serve the men and women of the world's great space program.
