We spend a lot of our time looking at challenge coins on the internet and one thing is for sure, there is a lot of them. They come in different shapes and sizes. Some are complex and some have more simple designs. They may even be so different from a normal coin that is can be difficult to classify them as a challenge coin. Who’s to judge?
One thing that we sometimes do cringe at is the amount of custom coins being made out there and sold for profit. We always thought that challenge coins should be earned or they should least promote a good cause or event. Sometimes we see coins being sold on Facebook as presales where the seller obviously put as little work as possible into their design and selling their coins for $20 each.
It is not our place to judge people on what they do with their coins or how they design them, but we do sometimes look down at those who don’t put any effort at least in designing a good coin. There is something almost sacred about forging a coin with a design in it and we believe it should be quality. Unfortunately some people disagree.
What do you think? Is it okay to sell challenge coins for profit? Why or why not…
