Coins & Medallions

The Giving of Coins & Medals

Though the issuing of challenge coins or medals (medallions) may date back for centuries and be well established in military circles, this tradition has carried over into business and civilian circles.

Executives often present challenge coins and medallions for various occasions. Whether to commemorate a significant anniversary or to recognize or award achievement or to show appreciation, a quality custom challenge coin or medal is high-touch, leaves quite an impression, and becomes a memento the giver and receiver can display and cherish for a lifetime.

Fire and Rescue


Since its inception, our firm has honored the tradition of creating challenge coins for military units of all service branches. In addition, it’s on trend for public safety departments to design custom coins to present to members of fire, rescue and police departments across the nation. Some are given to members of the department as a physical reminder of the importance of working as a team. Others are presented in commemoration of a significant event, happening or tragedy.

Though the presentation of challenge coins may have started (and continues to thrive) in the military, such coins are now often customized for non-military organizations, events or causes. With well over 100 years of combined craftsmanship experience, C. Forbes, Inc. collaborates with customers to create a wide variety of custom coins that incorporate individual stories, visions, and history.

Organizations including clubs, colleges, businesses, and church groups receive the C. Forbes personal touch. Your participation in the design and revision process continues until final approval is given for the finished challenge coin design. Regardless of the project’s nature, our in-house Art Department has the experience to make your objectives a reality.
