Challenge Coin Programs

How do you implement challenge coins within your department?

There are many ways to implement a challenge coin within your department or organization.  Here are some programs our customers have told us about:

Recognizing a Good Deed

The Mint Hill Police Department utilizes an effective program in regards to receiving a challenge coin. I have challenged all members of our department to be on the look out for other members doing the right thing at the right time. When I receive a nomination about a good deed I issue a letter of appreciation. If an officer receives two letters of appreciation I then award them a challenge coin.

This has improved morale and has kindled an esprit de corps within the ranks as the officers vie for a challenge coin.

Chief Tim W. Ledford
Mint Hill Police Department

“The idea of a challenge coin came as we were looking for a way to recognize the service of our members. We are an “all-volunteer” department with several retired members. In considering our options, we wanted something that could be kept as a keepsake memento for past and existing individuals. A coin seemed like a practical way to impress our appreciation each time it’s picked up or felt in someone’s pocket.”
