Help! I have a coin that I can find know reference!


Recommended Posts

There are medallion called 'challenge coins' which are very common in the US forces and now among Canadian units too. Every man from a given unit who has served in a specific location, an action or sometimes just in the unit itself gets one and is expected to carry it at all times. Whenever the unit members meet, any one of them can demand that everyone produce his coin and anyone who can't buys the beer. I think that's what you have.

Here's an explanation of challenge coins: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Challenge_coin
