The Origin Story

Now you know what military coins are and what they signify. But, are you privy to the origins of this great tradition that the military holds in such high regard? Only a few military coins are in circulation in the ‘outside’ civilian world and yet, the mystery around them continues. It is the emotions, the stories and the rich history that makes the military coins invaluable to their owners.


Where did it all begin?

It is impossible to trace down the first challenge coin that came into existence. There is no recorded history, but only stories that provide breadcrumbs that go as far back as Ancient Rome. That’s right! All challenge coins lead to Rome. It is Rome that began the tradition of rewarding an enlisted soldier with a precious coin for their bravery. Think of it as a bonus over and above the day’s pay on the battleground. According to a few stories, these ‘bonus’ 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.


The Firsts of the Modern Times!

The first mention of a challenge coin in the modern times comes from the World War I.

The legend goes that a French officer gave away a novelty bronze coin to each member of his flying squad during the World War I. Unfortunately, one of the members of the squad crashed into the German territory and he was captured. The Germans stripped the pilot except for the leather pouch hanging around his neck. Luckily, it was in this pouch that he had kept the coin. Later, the pilot successfully escaped into France. But, given the tensions between countries at that time, he was perceived as a spy sent by Germany to infiltrate their ranks. The pilot was imprisoned and awaited execution. It was at this point that the pilot presented the coin and a fellow French pilot recognizes it. It was a novelty piece that only the members of his squad knew about. It was the coin that saved the pilot’s life.

One of the later, but a more corroborated story comes from the 17th Infantry Regiment of the United States. The account comes from the period of the Korean War, when a Colonel, nicknamed Buffalo Bill, minted coins for his regiment. The coin had a buffalo engraved on one side, while the other side featured the insignia of the regiment. It also had a small hole on the top to make it easier for the soldiers to wear it around their necks.

There is another ‘origins story’ for challenge coins that comes from Germany. Most accounts say that the ‘challenge’ associated with the coins was started out by American soldiers stationed in Germany after the World War II. At the time, they used to carry out what were called ‘phennig checks’. Phennig was actually the lowest coin available in the German currency at that time. The idea was that if a soldier did not have a coin during a Phennig check, he had to buy beers for everyone. It was this Phennig check that then graduated to the military coins. Soldiers would come to a bar and slam their coin. If any soldier did not have their regiment’s coin, then they had to buy beer for the challenger who called for the coins and also for other soldiers who were carrying their coins. But, if everyone was carrying their coins, then it would be the challenger’s turn to buy the drinks for everyone.


It’s a Secret Rite of Passage

The challenge coins are passed down in the military, generally using a Secret Handshake. It is definitely not the only way, but it has become more of a tradition. 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 do not know is that they were the famed Secret Handshakes. Each and every serving serviceman received a special challenge coin from the Secretary of State.

Always Listen to the Story

There are many challenge coins out there – made of different metals and featuring different insignias. But, it is not the metal that bestows value on the military coins. It is actually the stories behind those coins that matter the most. You must know the history behind the awarding of the military coin – what were the circumstances under which special navy coins were minted? What were the stories of the soldiers who had the honor of owning them?

There might be military challenge coins for sale, but they are not ordinary coins that can be used for transactions. They carry rich history that can fill museums and it is their story that makes them so unique. So, try to hear it, embrace it, and be a part of the lineage of its proud owners.


They are Survivors

With custom coins now available to people, the tradition of military coins has become a part of the civilian society too. Challenge coins are a great way for organizations to instill a tradition of excellence and allegiance among their workforce. These custom coins, which are specially minted for a select few star performers, allow organizations to show their gratitude towards people who have illustrated the best of talents and the highest standards of service for the organizations. This allows them to create a sense of camaraderie and loyalty.

Military Coins are a memory, they are a symbol of commitment, they are heirlooms, and so much more. People who held those coins once are not here today, but their stories survive among us and this is what makes challenge coins larger than life. Custom coins have made it possible for everyone to be a part of this noble tradition and no one should miss such a chance.

Hundreds of years of history has not taken away the sheen of challenge coins. If anything, they are becoming more popular with the times.
