Honor Guard Challenge Coin
The honor guard is a ceremonial unit comprised of sworn members of the police department who are highly motivated and maintain exceptionally high standards of appearance, conduct and who show aptitude for ceremonial duty. Guards of Honor also serve in the civilian world for fallen police officers and other civil servants.
Certain religious bodies, especially Churches of the Anglican Communion and the Methodist movement, have the tradition of an Honor Guard at the funeral of an ordained elder, in which all other ordained elders present “guard the line” between the door of the church and the grave, or hearse if the deceased is to be buried elsewhere or cremated.
This honor guard custom challenge coin was commissioned by The City of Bellingham Police Department. They wanted a nice and unique coin with a blue color theme, with some contemporary graphics on the surfaces of the coin. One image would represent the beautiful natural scenic of the City of Bellingham, and another image on the other side would be a symbolic graphic of how they honor their fallen comrades.
For the scenic image of the nature, it’s done in a stylized painting style with solid colors. The lines are embossed and they are not painted and showing the coin’s real material color. And for the other image, it’s a silhouette of a Police officer holding a folded flag.
