Marine Corps Challenge Coins
Do you know about the tradition of carrying the challenge coin?
Among the Marine Corps' many traditions is the carrying of the challenge coin, and it is rooted in history dating back to World War I.
Today, service members possess many medallions, or challenge coins, bearing their organization's insignia. These coins are often presented by high-ranking officers for a job well done, which is a great honor. They are also sometimes traded between men and women in a unit.
