I have had a couple of conversations with people recently about military coins, many times refered to as "Challenge Coins". I have collected these for about the last 12 years...
There are different types of coins, some unit, some service - but the really cool ones are presentation coins that individuals pass out as recognition ...
I have about 300 different unit coins, but here is the "Cream of the Crop" so to speak...

I have a small collection but nothing to compare to yours. I am hoping to add a secret service coin from a friend of mine with the secret service as my best coin but looking at your set looks like you already have far and beyond that. I would love to know the story and who you recieved some of those coins from. Once again great collection!!

Very nice, I have only two. CIA Black Ops and this isn't Cullinary Institute of America (Cajun Cooking) and one from my current employer with the Air Force 53 WEG. Next time they offer the WEG coing I'll get a second if you want it.

I don't really collect em' but I have a stack from here and there. Just as you go from unit to unit, AOR, Command, or whatever.

Hell I even have a Booz|Allen|Hamilton coin that I designed.

I have a buncha coins my best friend left at my place....he's got a case of them, weighs like 200lbs.... so LOTS of coins. He's got some pretty slick ones though, including a few from the President, VP, Sec. of Army and some other fairly rare ones. He's just made SGM so he'll be making a new coin for himself, however he also has his own FSG coin. They are pretty cool to see some of them, some are very unique, others are pretty much a dime/dozen

I had one from President Clinton, it was one of three coins that have been stolen from me over time... The other two have been replaced, but not the one from the President --- those are pretty much as rare as they come!

Nice. I have a couple from my friends at Hurlburt: a 16 AMXS AC-130 Spectre gunship and a 4th Maint Unit Ghost Riders, as well as a couple from a girl I know at NASA: STS 103 Discovery return to space and a rare STS 107 Columbia, God rest their souls...
