What are Police Challenge Coins

Police challenge coins are based on challenge coins that the United States military has carried with them for nearly a century. We realize that police officers are a vital part for our safety and security in our communities, they risk their lives every time in order to protect their fellow citizens. And our police challenge Coins are an perfect way to honor the brave and dedicated police officers who try their best to protect and serve for citizens. These type of challenge coins are also usually given as a symbol of appreciation or identification for certain unit members to boost some morale virtues. Police challenge coins are also used by Police Chiefs Association, State Patrol and law enforcement agencies. In occasions, communities had created them for the sacrifices they make every day, and recently also to accompany the memorial for a fallen officer. To strengthen partnerships between police departments and the charities they support. Challenge coins are even offered to officers-in-training programs.

Why are Police Challenge Coins So Popular?

Just like the military, the brave hearts of the police force make sure that regular people have the peace of mind and are able to continue their life as usual. They keep the street safe and protect the lives of the citizens by risking their own. They are truly the heroes who are not appreciated enough for their contribution to the society. There are various ways in which people show their gratitude towards these exceptional people. Here are a few of them.

1. They Recognize the Best

There are police officers and then there are police heroes. Undoubtedly, every police officer plays an important role in keeping a city, town, and community safe. However, there are a few who go far and beyond their duty to help someone under their watch.Police challenge coins are a great way for thepolice departments (PDs) to recognize such officers. The departments often hold ceremonies to commend and celebrate the exceptional ones among themselves for their extraordinary actions. The positive impact they leave behind in their wake is recognized by the department by awarding them challenge coins.

PoliceChallenge coins thus become a mark of excellence. Carrying a challenge coin becomes a matter of pride. This is not only a big boost to their morale, but also helps in inspiring other young officers in the department. The pride and honor that accompanies the coin encourages a healthy competition among the officers.

2. They Evoke A Feeling Of Camaraderie

Carrying police custom challenge coins of your department is like carrying a part of your department with you. Police Officers from every department have a unique challenge coin that stays with them.These coins then become a legacy. They are passed down by officers in challenges or as a symbol of respect. A coin represents one PD and the officers that represent it. The coin then becomes a strong bond that all of them share. Something exclusive. Something to remind them that they are part of something special and truly big.They create a sense of brotherhood among the officers from the same PD and this is the emotion that encourages them to give their 100% to a tough, challenging and dangerous job.

3. They Are Different

Police challenge coins are a creative and an innovative way of thanking the police officers for their duty. They keep reminding them that they are an indispensable part of the society and that they are deeply appreciated.They are a gesture that will always be remembered. Getting a coin commissioned specially for you is some milestone.

Unlike awards or honors which hang on the walls or are tucked on a uniform, these coins can be carried around by the recipient wherever they go. They can reminisce the good old times and be proud of their service by looking down at the coin, anywhere and anytime. So, police challenge coins are definitely ‘different’.

4. Highly Useful for Fundraisers

Fundraisers are hugely important for police departments across the country. The money collected from the police department fundraisers usually take care of the maintenance and operations of the department. Where the government spending falls short, these funds help to maintain the uniforms, gear and what not.

Custom po;ice challenge coins can become a big asset here. Departments can choose a good design and get custom made coins for a particular fundraiser. The design has to incorporate two things. Firstly, the reason for which the coin is being minted should be clearly mentioned on the coin. Secondly, the coin should have an interesting design that instantly catches the eyes of the contributors at the event. You will need a good service that not only provides great designs, but is also able to execute that design on a coin. The uniqueness of the coins and the incredible first impression they leave attracts many takers. Police challenge coins for sale at such fundraisers rake up a lot of money.

5. Appeal to Collectors

There are not a lot of police challenge coins out there. These custom challenge coins are usually commissioned by local PDs to commemorate an event, to honor a fellow valiant officer or for fundraisers. These police challenge coins are highly valued by the individuals and families that receive it. They are passed down in families as an heirloom even. So, there are not a lot of police challenge coins for sale available freely in the market. This makes them highly collectible.

Collectors always keep an eye on such custom challenge coins to hit the market, so that they can snag them. Of course, a few of them hold more value than others depending on the importance of the reason for commission, such as how old they are and how rare they are. Police challenge coins are definitely a part of the local area’s history and naturally, the police challenge coinsmake for a good collector’s item.

Police challenge coins are popular for a lot of reasons. But, the crux of the matter is that whatever the reason is for commissioning the custom challenge coins,one thing is worth remembering – the coins will become a part of someone’s life. An important part that the coin holder is going to cherish for a long time. So, it goes without saying that they should be built to last. The PD should make sure that they hire a supplier that can promise a durable and high-quality material for the coins. High quality material does not always translate to expensive. It is possible to get custom coins cheap and within the budget of the organization.

Challenge coins can serve a lot of purposes. They are a treasure to the one who receives it and therefore, they should be created with care.

Designing Police Challenge Coins Guide

Police challenge coins technology:

We take a great pride in making these police challenge coins to convey a big sense of depth ness through using techniques like three-dimensional molding, cut-outs, acrylic coatings, and dual plating. If you prefer a smooth surface, you can also use a traditional 2D design, where the texture and depth ness can increase the "reality" of your police challenge coins design and help them catch the light and stand out in challenge coin display case. Glitter paint and glow-in-the-dark colors can add a little extra luster—glow in the dark paint could be particularly suitable for rewarding a police officer who patrols at night.

Police challenge coins size:

Police challenge coins can vary widely in diameter and thickness and are custom made coins according to your specifications of your department. About forty percent (40%) of the coins we produced for police challenge coins were of the two-inch (2”) round variety and this has been the most popular coin size for the last few years. It's popular for a couple of reasons: one is 2-inch coins that is easy to carry in your pocket, the other is the most traditional. As the larger-sized become more popular, we have seen a sharp increase in larger coins in recent years. Larger challenge coins are common across all branches of the law enforcement units as it allow units to show more artwork, corporate motto, and often create more unique challenge coins.

Police challenge coins shape:

Round coin shapes are still most traditional and most popular coins we produce, but the real is police challenge coins are available in custom sizes and shapes, from square or oval to coins resembling dog tags. The most common type of plating are silver, gold, nickel, bronze or an antique finish. Colored enamel filled or a printed inset with epoxy coating can add tremendous visual intrigue to your design, and makes it stands out.

Police challenge coins Edges:

A variety of edges options to make the police challenge coin a unique item. If you are after simplicity, we have a standard straight edge cut without any extra charge. But special edges options like rope cut, spur, oblique line, bevel cut, and diamond cross cut are details that can be give special touch to your coin design. Each edge cut has a different statement, just like each material. All of options we provided for edges, materials and enamel finishes convey a message of prestige and recognition.

Police challenge coins packaging:

GS-JJ offer clear PVC envelopes for free in every order so as to have a basic presentation option.
