Single-sided or dual-sided challenge coin: which is better

When we mentioned a challenge coin, we sure think that it has two sides. But all challenge coins do not have to be. Most challenge coins are dual-sided coins, but we are also creating a few single-side coins for clients’ special requirement.

Anyway, all custom items with wonderful design are greatly utilized in various events or occasions, and I give more explain about the two types below.

Single-Sided Coins

If you intend to give challenge coin with color, design, image etc. on coin’s one side, then finally you get the singled coin.

It’s a new and growing trend, we have seen so many is to design and create single-sided challenge coins lately, let other know clearly “what this challenge coin is mainly about “at first sight.

Only one side to design, you’re also can use unlimited colors and other amazing options (such as 3D design, plating, delicate details, and special edge) on challenge coin, to express what your coin wants to convey, and make it with great visual effect quickly.

For example, the above challenge coin with cross-cut edge is a wonderful way to add an impressive and attractive look to the whole design. This single-sided coin is much beautiful than normal two-sided coin.

Normally, single-sided challenge coins are used primarily for display purposes, perfectly help you award the excellence, increase brands awareness, or express message, and more.

Add up to four colors each side included, or a creative border and you can have one perfectly unique challenge coin. Color and other options on both sides add tremendous idea to your design, and make your challenge coin outstanding.

Custom made coins

Same design on both side challenge coin

If you want the same design to appear on both sides of challenge coin, this is an ideal choice too. Dual-sided challenge coins have different A side and B side mostly, and if both have similar design, image and logo looks more cool and unique, two sides like “twins”.

Dual-sided challenge coins are suitable to be carried by the recipients. Anyone will be deeply impressed when you show them with this beautiful coin!

Advantages: More colors and images make custom coins more attractive; enough space to bear your symbols, messages etc. When turnover challenge coins, you will excited about different presentation on two sides; and different image and text impress you again.
