There is a great history behind the military Challenge coins, but in saying that, its rather challenging there are all sorts of stories that tell of where the passing of challenge coins started, many are not very well documented, and can come in the form of legend and myth rather than history, but make for a good story anyway. One of the first commissions of a US military challenge coin was at the end of the first WW, was the covid 10th special forces group.

This military group was active in 1952 they were highly trained in unconventional warfare, one of unique aspects of the unit was that it was to leverage the 1950 lodge act which allowed for the first time to recruit foreign nationals into the United States military, after completing five years of service the could be granted US citizenship.

Imagine the value of such a coin.
