California State Challenge Coin

Challenge coins are made not only for the military or the first responders, a lot of times they are built for private companies, events, and also to show the pride of what you call home, in this case, it could be your hometown, your county, or the state that people live in. This California state challenge coin is one example of that.

The first Spanish missionaries arrived in California in the 1700s, but it didn’t become a U.S. territory until 1847, as part of the treaty ending the Mexican-American War. Shortly thereafter, the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill in 1848 inspired a wave of settlers to head to the west coast in search of fortune. In 1850 California became the 31st state, and is now the third-largest state behind Alaska and Texas.

California’s history is so romantic and filled with the legend that it is fitting that the region was named for a fictional island paradise described in the 16th-century Spanish romance Las Serges de Esplandian, which was popular when Spain’s explorers first came to this part of North America’s Pacific Coast.

The custom challenge coin we made for the State of California was a classic one. Its vintage design preserves the authentic feel of an old-school memento such as medals or coins.
