Wilkins Kaserne Challenge Coin
Fürst-Wrede-Kaserne has been a military facility in Munich, Germany, since 1936 when it was built by the Munich Heeresbauamt (army construction bureau) under its original name Verdun-Kaserne. After World War II the U.S. forces renamed it Will Kaserne, and the Bundeswehr renamed it once more in honor of Karl Philipp von Wrede on 17 April 1972. Originally, the fully motorized 7th Anti-Tank Detachment (Panzerabwehrabteilung 7) and an artillery unit used the barracks.
The facility was enlarged and renamed by the American troops who occupied it in 1951 after the war. The 169th Infantry Regiment, 43rd Division. The 43rd Division only stayed in Germany during the Korean War time. After that, elements of the 24th Division moved into Will Kaserne and stayed there until it was returned to the German government.
We had the opportunity to create a custom challenge coin for the Wilkins Kaserne Barracks, ordered by the 300th Military Police Company or also called 300th MP Co. They wanted us to produce a simple but elegant challenge coin using only their insignia and some letterings.
We put one insignia in colors on one side and one in black & white on the other. And we machined a wavy pattern on the edge of the coin to give it a unique artistic feel.
