Coins have been given as souvenirs and rewards since Roman times. Tradition suggests that the modern challenge coin concept dates to the First World War. According to a legend, an American lieutenant in the Army Air Corps printed medallions to encourage esprit de corps among his men. We have over 120 of these coins in our collection.
