Maidstone Harley-Davidson Challenge Coin

A challenge coin is a small coin or medallion, bearing an organization's insignia or emblem and carried by the organization's members. Traditionally, they might be given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale. They are also collected by service members and law enforcement personnel.


How does a challenge coin work?
The challenge is initiated by drawing your coin, holding it in the air by whatever means possible and state, scream, shout or otherwise verbally acknowledge that you are initiating a coin check. ... The response consists of all those persons being challenged drawing their coin in a like manner.

According to another story, challenge coins date back to World War II and were first used by Office of Strategic Service personnel who were deployed in Nazi held France. ... The coins were simply a local coin used as a "bona fides" during a personal meeting to help verify a person's identity.
