Description

What are challenge coins?

A challenge coin may be a small coin or medallion, bearing an organization`s insignia or emblem and carried by the organization`s members. Traditionally they might be given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale. They are also exchanged in recognition of visits to an organization. Modern day challenge coins feature popular culture attributes.

Challenge friends and riders with your unique coin- If they fail to present theirs, they pay the first round!

Where did this tradition come from?

Challenge coins were never officially sanctioned, so the history behind the tradition is widely debated among military historians.

A common narrative purports that a wealthy American lieutenant in WWI distributed matching bronze coins to his unit members before they were deployed. When an American fighter pilot was captured by Germans and escaped to a French outpost, he was assumed to be a German spy – until he presented the challenge coin around his neck. According to the tale, the coin saved his life – and earned him a bottle of French wine a reparation.

Other historians believe that the tradition began in an infantry-run bar in Vietnam, where patrons were required to present enemy bullets or their challenge coin on entrance.

In keeping with either narrative, challenge coins still earn service members their share of alcohol. Military members often tap their challenge coins upon meeting in a bar – shouting, “coin – check” – and anyone who either cannot produce one or is the last to show it buys the first round of drinks.
