Famously called the “Highlanders, the 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion is a fast and mobilized armored terrestrial reconnaissance battalion of the United States Marine Corps. Their primary weapon system is the LAV-25 Light Armored Vehicle armed with the M242 25mm Bushmaster chain gun. They fall under the command of the 1st Marine Division and the I Marine Expeditionary Force.

First Light Armored Vehicle Battalion was activated in May 1985 and began receiving the first of its LAV-25 light armored vehicles in July 1985. On 9 October 1988, the battalion’s name was changed to First Light Armored Infantry Battalion. In 2014, Alpha Company boarded the USS America in support of SPMAGTF South-14 in SOUTHCOM. Delta Company officially de-activated in Oct 2017. Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie companies continue a cycle of CHOPing by company in support of the rotating west coast MEUs.

This custom challenge coin we created for them is a sample of a classic challenge coin done right. Nothing unordinary or overwhelming with the basic layout of the design, and no special finish or pattern is needed to finish this beautiful simple coin. We just needed to make sure that the manufacturing process was done flawlessly. As you can see in the photos, all the engravings and embossed graphics were machined with precision.
