Origins of Custom Coins

History of the Metal Coin

No one is sure who created the first coin but there are many experts who all have different theories. Coins have been found from as early as 7th century BC and are believed to come from the ancient civilization of Lydia. Governments have been using coins as currency for centuries and in recent years modern technology has allowed coins to have multiple metals, better edging and sharp-looking designs.

Kingpins has faithfully supplied organizations with Custom Coins that meet the highest standards. We create custom made coins by using your insignia, or by helping you design something new.

Purpose of Custom Made Coins

More than just loose change, a custom made coin is a great metal souvenir for any event or accomplishment. KingPins works with you to create a custom coin that you can be proud to stamp your logo on. Our sales people will coast you through the process of finding a coin that works for you and our design staff will make your message stand out from your coin.

Custom Challenge Coins

ORIGIN

Throughout our time making custom coins, we have found challenge coins to be one of our more popular items. A challenge coin is a coin that bears a group’s emblem; these coins are given to members within an organization. Challenge coins are given to prove a person’s membership to the organization and act as proof if the person’s membership status is challenged.

Our custom coins are worthy of any collection and KingPins does this by using top-quality metals along with design technologies when creating custom coins. We do it all, everything from effortlessly guiding you through our design process to shipping your custom made coins to your doorstep.

SIGNIFICANCE

Historians also dispute the origins of challenge coins, but many agree that the metal coins were created in the United States by the United States Army Air Service (the predecessor of the United States Air Force). In its early days the Air Service was full of pilots who worked daytime jobs and challenge coins were given for members of a squad to easily identify themselves.

"The Challenge" As the story goes, one must carry their challenge coin at all times. If one is "challenged" to show their coin and does not have it on them, they must either forfeit something or pay the price for its absence.
