The Best Quality

Great looking coins start with a smart design. Not only is it important for your challenge coin design to be made with common graphic design sensibilities, but it's also important to understand the production process and manufacturing capabilities.

Our customers choose to work with us because they know they'll get a great design based on their own unique wants and needs. Simply tell one of our designers what you want.

Many of our must successful projects began with our customers showing us what they like and don't like. Show us some photos of coins in your collection or that you've seen online. Tell us what you like about those and how you would change them to make them better. We'll take that information and add your own words, logo, and design elements to create a coin in a similar style.




Available from ICON Emblem

All of our metal products come in a variety of shapes, sizes and looks. Materials, colors, and manufacturing processes all factor in to the end result of your truly one-of-a-kind design.

The following guide shows some of the ways we can produce your coin or medal. If you're unsure or if you have any questions, simply ask your knowledgeable ICON Emblem design representative for a suggestion and a free art mock-up.


Die struck metal with enamel paint fill

Our most popular choice, die cast metal challenge coins and medallions are the versatile and affordable option.

Start by choosing what color metal you prefer - silver, gold, and bronze are the most popular choices. Our die cast metal coins and medals, like our lapel pins, are filled in with high quality enamel paints to match the colors in your artwork. The end result is breathtaking and worthy of trading at the most formal and dignified of events.



Die Struck metal without coloring

Die struck medals and coins look great with or without enamel fill. Medals and coins without fill are a popular choice for subdued designs and one-color shapes. They tend to have a timeless, classic look and often resemble currency.

Have a single-color hand-drawn design that you did in pencil, ink or charcoal? This might be the your most suitable option.



Photo Etched

Photo etched coins and medals give a similar result to die struck metals and are comparatively less expensive because of the more economical manufacturing process. Like photo-etched lapel pins, photo etched coins and medals are created from a photo of your art. The photo is transferred to the surface of a sheet of metal, and then the design is etched into the metal surface. The etched carvings are then filled with enamel paint colors. When the colors are set, the custom shape is cut from the sheet of metal. Then, your items are finished up with polish and, if you prefer, a clear coating.


Printed Coins and Medals

Printed coins and medals are ideal for designs with lots or colors or when colors blend or fade. Printed coins and medals, like printed lapel pins, are metal coins and medallions with your artwork printed on top. Printed coins and medals can be cut into custom shapes. They're covered with a clear protective coating that will help your items look great for years.
