While the idea of having your own personalized coin can seem fabulous, keep in mind that in making the coins, a mold needs to be created. This usually means that production needs to be in bulk. Typically, minimum orders are about 50 pieces, depending on the negotiations. We suggest getting a free quotation before finalizing any purchase. ChallengeCoins4Less.com would be glad to assist on the quote, including design possibilities for a more economical outcome of your custom coin.

There is a corresponding sentimental value for every custom coin that is made because it is used to represent something meaningful and significant to people. When engraved in a coin, with its durability, the memory can last for generations to come.
