Wait – why aren’t all of our coins made in the USA?
We get that question a lot! There’s a short answer and a long answer, but the simple truth is that it’s better for everyone to offer both. We are an American company, and everyone that touches your order on the front end from our salespeople to the graphic designers and admin team is all US-based. However, just like the majority of other companies who offer custom metalcraft, our standard coins are produced overseas by the absolute best factories in the business. Their quality and capabilities are second to none, which is why we’ve worked so closely with them all these years to provide our clients with the best coins at the right price point.
With that said, we completely understand and empathize with customers that may not feel comfortable receiving foreign-made coins. Many government agencies and military units have begun requiring that their coins be produced in North America to support skilled US labor, which is why we’ve partnered with domestic union minting shops to make that option available to everyone!
Understanding Our Production Choices
You might wonder why not all our coins are made in the USA. It's a valid question with a straightforward answer: flexibility and quality. While our team in the USA, from sales to design, ensures your order's excellence, our standard coins are crafted in collaboration with the finest overseas factories. This global partnership allows us to offer an unmatched variety at the right price point.
Customization and Quality - How are USA Made coins different from regular challenge coins?
Quality-wise, there's no difference between our domestic and international coins. The choice boils down to your needs and budget. Generally, USA made coins cost more and take longer to produce than our standard coins. These are premium products manufactured by union laborers at artisanal metal crafting facilities, so what you’re paying for is the skill and expertise of those select few Americans who specialize in making custom challenge coins. Some customization options may differ from what we normally offer for our standard coins and are subject to change based on material and factory availability. For example, our US factories may not be able to provide certain translucent colors, but they also have the capability to mint coins in precious metals instead of the standard plated brass base. Again, it’s all up to your budget and specific coin needs!
