The origin of challenge coins dates back to World War I when an American was shot down behind enemy lines. Stripped of all his belongings except his small leather pouch containing a coin, the pilot was held captive by the Germans in a small French town. One night during some heavy fighting, he managed to escape avoiding the Germans and reached a French outpost. With no identification, the insignia on the coin was recognized by the French saving this young pilot’s life.
There are many who keep this tradition going providing custom coins for our military however one has gone above and beyond. While stationed at Camp Lejeune, Jeff Morin witnessed the effect a challenge coin can make on someone. Determined to recreate this affect, he started Coins for Anything, Inc. in 2002 with the goal to provide the finest quality custom-made challenge coins in the industry.
Their focus is on military challenge coins, however, Coins for Anything knew the applications were limitless. Quickly spreading beyond the military, they have produced coins for corporations such as rewards for outstanding service, employee recognition, company business cards, gifts cards and loyalty discounts. Having a baby? Getting married? The traditional tins with chocolates or pink and blue candy covered almonds are favors of the past. Coins commemorating these moments create a unique keepsake everyone will treasure and remember for generations to come.

Traditionally, challenge coins are used by the military as tools to build morale; as rewards for outstanding service and performance of duty. In recent years, they have become a way to show your loyalty and devotion anytime, anywhere. Their popularity has grown outside the military; within other organizations such as NASCAR, the Boy Scouts, Harley Davidson, World Series of Poker and many others. Police and fire departments have also taken on the tradition.
Challenge coins have evolved over the years; becoming a tool to build morale, used as rewards for outstanding service and performance of duty. We have designed this challenge coin to represent strength and ones desire to be recognized.
The obverse side has the American Buffalo "Bison" which is a symbol of strength. The reverse side has a combination of 3 waves and 6 stars representing the American flag. In honor of all the men and women, past and present, who serve our country, the top reads, "Be WORTHY Of RECOGNITION." They are a true symbol of what this means.
