Lady Vet Challenge Coin
Do you know how challenge coins became a thing? There are a few origin theories, but one strong contender hails from the Vietnam War. Allegedly, an Army infantry-run bar required patrons to prove they’d been in combat, or they had to buy drinks for the whole bar. So a coin was made with the unit insignia as a way to show proof of service – now known as a coin check. We think it’s a fitting symbol of service for women, who are often challenged personally on their Veteran status.
So why not honor the Lady Vet in your life with our inaugural custom challenge coin? Let her know you see her and appreciate her service and sacrifice.
Reasons to give our challenge coin:
- To remind her of her strength, beauty and badassery
- As a nod to your shared bond of service
- As a physical token of encouragement for the battles she faces
- As a coin check – to remind her that she belongs
- As a heartfelt salute to her service
Our limited production challenge coin is:
- 1.75 inches in diameter
- Double sided
- Full color set in a silver color base
Give the gift of recognition or add to your own collection!
