Challenge coins have become a symbol of pride and loyalty to those who are awarded these. In Ancient Rome, possessing a challenge coin indicates greatness in battle. World War 1 finds these challenge coins as items of identity. After World War II, Americans in Germany took a fancy to continue the tradition of coin checking (pfennig being used) so that whoever is challenged but cannot produce a coin buys beer for those who have.
Today though these coins are continually being given as a reward for good performance. People who receive these coins proudly display these coins as it sets them apart from the rest, having done something exemplary or having reached a certain milestone in their careers. The coins have seen other uses as well: as a keepsake of friendship, exchanged like business cards or collected as souvenir items.
