Sequential Numbering &
Custom Engraving

Two upgrades that allow you to add a personal touch to your challenge coins are sequential numbering and custom engraving. We can add numbering and custom engraving on either the face of the coin, or along the edge. Adding numbering, or custom engraving the names of team members gives the coin a deeper intrinsic value to those who receive it. It serves as a constant reminder that they are one of a few that had the honor of receiving the challenge coin. 

UPGRADE BY ADDING SPECIALIZED COLOR EFFECTS

Adding tranlucent or glow enamel to your coin can add some really interesting effects to it. We offer an array of colors for both, and depending on how you use them you can create some serioulsy cool effects! For instance, adding transllucent to a polished coin makes the color more vibrant, or adding glow enamel to a dark metal such as black nickel or black metal makes the colors really pop!

Translucent Enamel

Translucent Enamel for Challenge Coins is a very versatile option. You can make a number of interesting effects, but in order to do so it helps to know a few things. First, the plating matters. Translucent on polished metals are very vibrant, and have a deeper rich tone on antique finishes. Try to avoid black metal or black nickel when using translucent enamel however as the dark color makes the colors very dark and hard to see. Another thing to consider is the color of the metal. Translucent coloring on a copper coin, for instance, will take on a reddish hue.

Glow-in-the-Dark Enamel

Glow-in-the-Dark enamel is a little more straight forward than translucent. It isn’t see through so you can use it on any metal. Unlike translucent, it actually works best on dark metals such as black nickel or black metal. Another difference is, where translucent can be made with any Pantone Solid Coated color, Glow Enamel has a very select number of available colors. One color that we don’t have, but is requested frequently, is red. We have White, Pink, Purple, Green, Yellow, Blue and Orange, but unfortunately Red doesn’t glow well.

CHALLENGE COIN EDGE
UPGRADE OPTIONS

Adding an edge to your coin makes a significant difference in it’s overall appearance. In general it gives the coin a much more clean, professional look. Some edges are free, but the ones that really make your coin stand out are created by a special machine that cuts the edge into the coin. This is why they cost a little extra. The cost of edges are still relatively cheap compared to some of our other upgrade options, so for those looking to vastly improve the look and feel of their coin without a significant up-charge, adding an edge to your custom challenge coin is the way to go!

SOME ADDITIONAL OPTIONS TO CONSIDER...

Hard Enamel

Seriously, what is cooler than having your own custom bottle opener that represents you and your squad? These are a highly sought after upgrade option simply because it adds fun and utility to your already awesome Challenge Coin. These are great for gifts for all types of situations such as award ceremonies, military balls, employee recognition events and more. Nothing is more satisfying than sitting back after a hard days work with your pals and cracking open a cold one!

Hard Enamel Challenge Coin
Epoxy Coating for Challenge Coins

Epoxy Coating

Epoxy Coating is a clear epoxy resin added over the surface of the coin to produce a hard layer of plastic that helps protect the enamel from damage. There are some drawbacks such as it can discolor over time, and it makes it so that your coin can no longer be engraved except on the edges.

Silk Screen

Silk Screen is mostly used for capturing small details that would otherwise not be producible. It can also be used for adding text that varies coin to coin so  that you don’t have to create a new mold for each coin (which would be insanely expensive).

Offset Challenge Coin

Offset Printed

Offset Printed coins are produced by printing an image onto an adhesive photo paper, inlaying it on the coin, and covering it with a protective layer of epoxy resin. They are great for images of loved ones, or any other time you want a photo realistic image.
