What is a challenge coin?

The idea of the challenge coin originates from WW1, where the first military pilots often had medallions associated with their squadrons. One pilot was downed in Germany. He escaped to France, and showed the squadron’s medallion to French soldiers in order prove he wasn’t an enemy soldier or spy. The French soldiers offered him a bottle of wine.

Thus started the tradition of the challenge coin, which has since become popular throughout the military and beyond. A challenge coin is a something someone gives to another for having done something great, such as:

  • Participation in an important ceremony or event
  • For having done great work in a task
  • As an informal award for promotion or service
  • For commemorating events
  • To commemorate your own promotion or retirement

Challenge Coin Rules

Challenge coins used to be small round coins, but have now grown into an array of differently and unique shaped coins in small and large sizes.

The challenge coin can be used by friends and military members to challenge each other to a round of drinks. When one person pulls out their coin, each other person must show their coin, or buy drinks for the others. If all of the other people pull out their coins, the first person must buy the drinks. Here are the rules:

  • Pull out your coin
  • If someone doesn’t have their coin, they buy the drinks
    • If more than one doesn’t, those people split
  • If all people present their coins, the first person buys
  • So keep your coin with you all the time!!!
