What makes Navy coins different from other challenge coins?

The insignia, of course! You can customize your Navy coins with any image you want. Even though military challenge coins are believed to have originated with the Army Air Corps, they’re not limited to any one branch. We’ve had the privilege of providing custom coins for every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, and our Navy coins are second to none.

In 2012, we had the honor of producing the official coin for the USS Enterprise’s (CVN-65) final deployment before the great ship’s decommissioning. The coin included a 3-D replica of the ship. The front side also included the ship’s official insignia, and the reverse featured 3-D images of all eight ships to bear the name Enterprise. It’s one of the coins we’re most proud of.

Where Did Navy Challenge Coins Originate?

The origins of military challenge coins are murky, and impossible to confirm. One popular story says they began in World War I when an Army Air Corps lieutenant had custom coins made for his squad. From there, the coins eventually spread to other branches of the Armed Forces. Today, every branch has their own custom coins.

From the crew chief to the Commander in Chief, each custom challenge coin they give is unique to them. For the recipient, it signifies achievement in a vital role. Challenge coins support morale and camaraderie among the ranks, and provide keepsakes sailors can hold onto as a memento in their time of serving their nation.
