Challenge coins have a rich history in the military, which some would say dates back to as early as World War I, when given to an elite flying squadron. The symbolism of the challenge coin became more and more popular during the days of the Vietnam war and they’re still popular today. Although they’re most often associated with the military, other organizations are able to give challenge coins too.
To an outsider, a challenge coin might look like nothing more than a fancy collectible. It’s true that these coins are collector’s items, but they’re also shrouded in a very real and meaningful tradition. Challenge coins indicate an individual’s membership in something important, and there are rules that govern them. Playing the game by throwing down a challenge with a coin is something with which every challenge coin owner is probably familiar. There’s something special about this, and that’s why we’ve chosen to make it a part of our VA lending program.
To show our deep gratitude to your clients for their service to this great nation, we will be sending them one of our custom-made challenge coins. Since we took this tradition up in 2016, we’ve sent 51,000 coins to deserving military and veteran Caliber clients and partners.
