Shiny, Shiny 2014 Challenge Coins Now Available for Pre-order

What is a “challenge coin”? It’s a small coin bearing an organization’s insignia or emblem and carried by the organization’s members. Traditionally, they are given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale and camaraderie within a military group. In addition, they are also collected by service members and have spread in popularity in recent years with non-military groups, such as civic organizations and volunteer groups.

We are happy to present Dragon Con’s first official collection of Challenge Coins at our Inaugural Intergalactic Military Ball Charity Event in 2014.
