CUSTOM CHALLENGE COIN MANUFACTURER
HISTORY OF THE CHALLENGE COIN
Challenge coins have a rich history and are still used to this day by emergency responders to recognize excellence in the line of service. During WWI, the commanding officer of a military unit stationed in the European theatre wanted to give a coin to visitors. He decided to have coins imprinted with the unit insignia and give them as gifts. After returning the United States, everyone in the unit was given a coin and, thus, the tradition of challenge coins began. During the past five years, the emergency services community has started making challenge coins for their units. They are meant to be carried on your person at all times. We have years of experience designing and manufacturing custom challenge coins for a variety of different organizations.
USING CHALLENGE COINS TO BOOST COMPANY MORALE
It’s a proven fact that employee morale increases when employees they feel valued, acknowledges and important as a part of the team. Recognition from management or even other team members can help motivate your employees to do their best. Gifts or awards are effective and widely used for recognition in businesses and organizations. Something your employee can display at their desk or at home shows their achievement and will make them feel proud of their accomplishments within your company.
A great way to recognize your employees or coworkers is with corporate challenge coins. A challenge coin is a medallion with a custom logo or design; they are very popular among the military and public service industries such as police and firefighters. Even if your employees move on to other opportunities, the memory the corporate challenge coin holds will be something they will look fondly on and will strengthen your company image when they speak of them. Corporate custom made challenge coins will become a lifetime memorandum for your employees to hold on to.
