    Challenge Coin Information

    I have tried searching online for some challenge coins for Okinawa, Japan/Fallujia, Iraq/TQ, Iraq ectt but all I find are genaric coins. Is there any site that has more of a non generic coin but I don't want to custom make one as that would probably cost too much seeing as how I only need one. Any information would be a great help.

    Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place but I couldn't find a better suited topic to place this under..

    Thank you CPL Pete however I have searched that website and those are not really the kind that I am looking for..those coins look like every other website's coins for OIF that I have seen thus far..

    Well what kind of coin do you want, they don't make them for every firefight or town you know

    The coins for a particular battle, town, FOB, etc. are custom ordered by units.

    Best bet would be to contact a manufacturer directly and see if they can help you out.

    No I haven't even thought of the AAFES store. Ha i'm glad I posted up here.

    I figured there would be a coin out there for at least fallujia, but yea I thought whenever units purchased the coins they always had extras to sell..

    Anyways I think I will check out the AAFES. Thanks for that tid bit of info CPL's!

    Contact the units directly then and see if they will part with any extras.
    I am sure they will know where to get them if they don't have them.

    I recently purchased a shellback coin here http://store.nwtmint.com/Marine_Corps/Commemorative/ALL

    It's pretty nice.
