Challenge coin design provides a distinctive touch

Challenge coin designMedalcraft Mint specializes in custom challenge coin design and production

The presentation of challenge coins and other commemoratives has become a popular trend as a growing number of organizations look for ways to encourage high-level performance among team members. Customized challenge coin design is a differentiating factor that separates organizations desiring a special touch from those content with stock inventory.

Medalcraft Mint, an American designer and manufacturer of medallions, graduation medals and other commemoratives, takes challenge coin design to a higher level with an in-house team dedicated to creating something truly exceptional.

“Anyone can deliver an off-the-shelf challenge coin that carries virtually no significance to the organization or the individual,” notes Jerry Moran, owner and chief executive officer of Medalcraft Mint. “But organizations that take the extra step of contracting for a unique design stand out from the crowd.”

Challenge coin design is the first step in creating a memorable gift

Medalcraft Mint has more than half a century of experience creating exceptional commemoratives, including challenge coins and custom award pins. The company has been recognized within the industry with more awards for superior metal striking than any of its competitors over the past three decades.

Established processes consistently result in high-quality commemoratives for a wide range of customers, including emergency medical services (EMS), law enforcement agencies, the military, educational institutions, health care organizations and corporate entities. Every step of the challenge coin design and manufacturing process takes place in Medalcraft Mint’s Green Bay, Wisconsin, plant.

“Our team uses a die-striking production process that turns challenge coin designs into high-quality finished products,” Moran says. “This process provides superior image quality and overall better products than cast pieces.

The die-striking process calls for pressing metal into a die cavity to create an exact impression of the custom-designed image. Medalcraft Mint uses the die-striking process rather than casted molds because it allows for the use of higher-quality materials to create superior challenge coin designs and products.

A Reputation for Quality Craftsmanship

Medalcraft Mint has been a Wisconsin-based company since its founding in 1948. The company produces a wide selection of challenge coins, badges, recognition awards, ceremonial maces and other commemoratives in its 32,000-square-foot facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
