Taps Song Challenge Coin
The use of “Taps” is unique to the United States military, as the call is sounded at funerals, wreath-laying ceremonies, and memorial services. “Taps” originally began as a signal to extinguish lights. Up until the Civil War, the infantry call for “Extinguish Lights” was the one set down in the Infantry manuals which had been borrowed from the French.
Taps song is played every day in Veterans’ cemeteries around the world. Those clear, sad tones conjure up memories of loved ones lost, instill hope, and bring comfort and peace to the families and communities of those who have served with honor. In 2012, the U.S. Congress recognized “Taps” as the “National Song of Remembrance.”
This custom challenge coin was crafted to honor a U.S. Army Specialist. We were requested to make a beautiful and memorable challenge coin, with a timeless design. The main element that we used for the relief of the coin was an image of a soldier blowing a bugle.
The ‘soldier with a bugle’ relief was made in digital design before our cutting-edge machinery sculpted it on the base material made from high-quality metal. The reliefs on both sides were painted with brass-colored coats with black backgrounds, encircled with some inscriptions taken from the lyrics of the Taps song.
