Masonic Challenge Coins

Embleholics has made every kind of coin imaginable, in every shape you can dream of. We have made coins thick and thin, cutout, bottle openers, everything. Commonly we make military challenge coins or coins for fire departments or other public organizations, many of which have a rich symbolism and deep thought behind them, and the level of detail required is important in getting the placement of all items correct. But this level of detail and symbolism goes to another level of complexity and importance when it comes to making Masonic challenge coins.

We have made dozens of different Masonic challenge coins, often for an entire lodge or for the leadership of a lodge in order to give out to lodge members and people outside of the lodge. Common features of a Masonic challenge coin is the name and number of the lodge, the date it was established, and at least some basic symbols important to Masonry, such as the square or compass and the trowel. From here the sky is the limit in creating Masonic challenge coins.

In one set of coins we did, the coin itself was shaped and designed to look like a Mason’s apron on the front complete with tools and the all-seeing eye. On the other side it got even more complicated, with an altar centering the coin, and the mosaic pavement composed of black and white tiles leading up to it—the black and white of course symbolizing good and evil. Pillars adorn the sides, and three candles are situated in appropriate corners around the altar. Above, a sun and moon watch over it all. Most of our images on that Masonic challenge coin were 3D.

In another set of Masonic challenge coins we created, the customer wanted us to feature their temple on the center of one side of the coin. When it comes to recreating buildings, we understand that it is extremely important to get as detailed as possible, and to get certain details accurate to their original forms. This is doubly-true with Masonic challenge coins and their lodges, which themselves are filled with symbolic meaning.

When it comes to recreating symbols or buildings onto a coin, the first thing we typically do is make them into a gold/silver look if they aren’t already, as this allows us to represent them in full 3D and get to a far greater level of detail than would be possible in a 2D shape. Generally we like to get multiple angles/views of the building in order to pick the best representation on the coin. After recreating the building on the coin, we always work with every customer in order to get all the details we can in there. This is extremely important when it comes to faithfully reproducing buildings on a Masonic challenge coin, as there are often numerous small details that may otherwise be missed during a rushed design process. And for an organization like Masons, we know how important it is to have very fine details in there, and Embleholics is fully capable of meeting your needs better than any other company.

Our artist has designed dozens of different Masonic challenge coins for us, and has years of experience with thousands of different coin designs. After working with our artist on your design for as many drafts as are necessary, we faithfully replicate the design into a mold that is capable of reaching a very high level of detail. Although detail is important for most organizations, it is extremely important for Masons as the symbolism of images and buildings is important to get exactly right. Embleholics is up to the task, and we have a long track record of meeting the needs of customers who demand high detail and quality in any representation of their organization on a coin.

Custom and Unique Masonic Challenge Coins

With Masonic challenge coins, the emphasis is less on using colors on a coin and more on using metal 3D plating to replicate symbols as accurately as is humanly possible. During the design process, we can add a few bits of color here and there in order to bring out the coin’s metal finish as beautifully as possible. While we make coins for a variety of situations, some of them formal and some informal, we find that Masonic challenge coins typically have a greater need for professionalism than most other coins do, as they will be shared by leadership to people who aren’t Masons, with other lodges, or at high-profile events. Our highly personalized design process ensures that your coins will look as professional as you want them to be.

Embleholics values the contribution that Masons have made and continue to make toward making our country great and performing great services to our communities. We know what service means, and so we thank all Masons for their service towards trying to make people’s lives better and more fulfilling. With every design Embleholics does, we strive to break the mold and improve upon everything possible. We always strive for professionalism and great customer service, and we will bend over backwards to help make sure that your coin comes out looking as great as you would expect it to, from design to completion.
