What are Air Force Challenge Coins?

The United States Air force is the largest and most technologically advanced force of its kind in the world and a troops which time and again proves itself worthy of possessing a multitude of Air force challenge coins. It is rumored that the first challenge coins were made for members of the Air corps. So, probably the Air force is the original source of the challenge coins. The long and proud tradition of challenge coins is a testimony to Air Force ingenuity. The Air Force challenge coins are originally used as a way to help identify shot down pilots over German occupied France in the first world war and have come to be a collectible keepsake for military members. Air Force challenge coins can be carried with you anywhere, and fit into your pocket every day.

History of Air Force Challenge Coins

Air Force Challenge Coins are as old as challenge coins themselves. Indeed, many of the earliest accounts of American challenge coins indicate their origins in the US Air Force. The story of the pilot who escaped his death penalty after proving he was an American pilot by showing his challenge coin is the most popular one. The French thought him to be a German spy and it was his challenge coin that saved his life. When the pilot returned to his squadron, challenge coins became a well-known tradition.

Everyone kept their most prized challenge coins on their person. At the behest of any coin holder at the bar, everyone had to produce their challenge coin. Any soldierwho didn’t have the coin, had to buy a round of drinks for everyone. So, while veterans decorate their coins in glass showcases, they tend to carry their most precious coin in their pockets, always prepared for any ‘coin check’ challenge.

In the Air Force, while different squadrons and wars have distinctive coins in their name, there is always a coin that everyone who has served in the Air Force holds dear. And that is the Airman’s coin. Trainees in the Air Force have to undergo their basic military training, at the end of which their accomplishment is celebrated with the coin ceremony. It is here that the trainees finally become Airmen. This ‘graduation’ is commemorated by presenting them with thisair force academy challenge coin. It would not be an overstatement to say that this is one of the most, if not the most popular and the most treasured Air Force challenge coins in existence.

Then, there is the First Salute coin which is also a big thing across squadrons. As the name suggests, this coin is presented to the subordinate who salutes a newly commissioned officer first. As the officer climbs the ranks, the coin becomes more and more valuable. This is an innate part of the Air Force history and it is quite common for the officers to create their own custom air force challenge coins.

Apart from the First Salute coins, many commanders create theirown custom challenge coins. They are presented to celebrate the airmen, who are committed to their duty and exemplify excellence through their work ethics and how they present themselves.

The tradition ofAir Force challenge coins started during the First World War and the officers in the US Air Force have done a commendable job of taking it forward. Today, there are hundreds of Air Force challenge coins out there. Each one of them signifies the dedication and commitment of the young men and women that are protecting the US skies.

While customers can order any type of Air Force Challenge Coins they have in mind, they can also take inspiration from some of the most popular Air Force Challenge Coins out there.Every etch and line ofthe traditional coins tells a story of the time in the past that has shaped the present we live in and continues to shape our shared future.
