One of the most frequent question that we are asked is whether we can produce Military Coins made in the United States. The answer is that we not only offer US made challenge coins but that they can be an affordable alternative to overseas made custom coins.
HOW CAN MILITARY COINS MADE IN THE USA BE AFFORDABLE
The key to US made Challenge Coins is to look to the tradition of the coin for guidance. There has been a trend in recent years for custom coins to become more and more elaborate. These beautiful coins have tons of colors, spinners, bottle openers and odd shapes. While these features can make for a unique coin they can also make the price of US coins go through the roof.
I like to describe military coins made in the USA as elegant and refined. The traditional challenge coin featured the unit crest and perhaps the rank of the presenter done in elegant detail and perhaps exquisite relief (or 3d). American die makers are masterful in their execution. Keeping the coins simple and elegant is the key to having great military coins mad in the USA.
OUR COIN MANUFACTURING PARTNER – MADE IN THE USA
Our US manufacturer has taken steps recently to ensure that the coins are not only great in detail and quality but also that they are affordable. We can now offer multiple colors at very affordable prices. We can offer exquisite 3d on the U.S. made challenge coins. But in all processes there is some give and take.
WHEN ARE US MADE CHALLENGE COINS MOST AFFORDABLE
First you will want to look at qualtity. U.S. Made military challenge coins are best purchased in quality. Though we can do fewer coins in the USA a starting order of 300-500 or more is a great benefit to you. Keeping the design simple and elegant will also reduce costs. But did you know that at the 500 coin level it is possible to do a US challenge coins for well under $4.00 each? Not bad at all. And there is no need to sacrifice quality in doing it. I am not talking about a second-rate coin. I am talking about a solid bronze, exquisitely made custom coin. (And oh by the way, in a U.S. shop with union employees.)
