Retired Airborne Challenge Coin
In most cases, Soldiers who have completed 20 years of active service are eligible to receive Retired Pay at the end of their career. The Date of Initial Entry into Military Service (DIEMS) confirms which of the three retirement systems a Soldier falls under. Today, a recruit may enter the service at 17 years old and stay in service until age 65, for a total of 48 years of service.
The 82nd Airborne Division is an active airborne infantry division of the United States Army specializing in joint forcible entry operations. A U.S. Army airborne officer is responsible for leading and commanding airborne units. They must plan and execute airborne missions for their units and train and supervise airborne soldiers.
When a U.S. Army personnel retires, sometimes the person is given a retirement challenge coin. We were asked to manufacture one for a retired Airborne command sergeant major. The requested design was a round-shaped challenge coin, with the image of the army rank symbol engraved on one side, and several U.S. Army and The 82nd insignias on the other.
Our team of graphic designers made some layouts for the design idea and rendered them as 2D images to be approved. Once the layout was approved, the digital design went to our state-of-the-art machinery to start production. The construction of the custom coin went through several quality control steps before being finalized with coloring paints and a protective coat.
