The most recent example of the Secret Handshake was seen during the Afghanistan tour of the Secretary of State Robert Gates in 2011. He met many valiant men and women who were serving the country and shook hands with them.

To everyone, it was a simple ceremonious act. But, what many people don't know is that this is a secret handshake known for passing military coins. Each serving serviceman received a special challenge coin from the Secretary of State.


Where Did It Begin?

It is impossible to trace down the first challenge coin that came into existence. But there are some classical stories about military challenge coins can be tracked.

As for the initial legend, all about challenge coins come from Ancient Rome. It is Rome that began the military coin tradition of rewarding enlisted soldiers for their bravery. Think of it as a bonus over and above the day’s pay on the battleground.

These ‘bonus’ military coins were specially minted and featured the symbol of the soldier’s legion. This prompted many soldiers to save them as souvenirs and not use them as currency to spend on their spoils.
