Creating custom coins is great, but the truth of it all comes down to this: you need a company with experience in creating them. Otherwise, your coin might not be what you expected or wanted which will leave things feeling less than satisfactory for both sides involved (the customer). There are definitely rules about making these types of challenge tokens though; if someone knows how to break those then they can make anything happen!
Custom minting large coins is not something every coin design company can do. When working with a new company, you have to ask, what is the maximum size of a challenge coin you can offer? Fortunately, by choosing to work with vivipins, the only limits to your challenge coin design are your imagination and budget.
On average, custom coins can range in size from 1 inch to 3 inches, but even 1-inch sizes are on their way out. The most common size for a challenge coin is 1.75 inches. These average size ranges mean that anything less than 1.75 inches is considered a small coin, while anything over 2.5 inches is considered a large challenge coin.
As is known to all, all more than 2.5 inches of COINS is thought to be the big size of the challenge COINS, but the number should not be your design challenges currency restrictions, you should know, if you have the need, most of the company can also provide 2.5 inches or more challenge COINS, so design, size is the most should not worry about a problem, but, as the size increases, More materials will be used, which will increase the cost, but 98% of people will think it's worth it.There are several factors to keep in mind when considering ordering mega Challenge coins:
Cost - The larger the coin, the more materials are needed to make it. So the bigger the size, the higher the unit price.
Thickness - The average thickness of the challenge coin is 2-3 mm. When you choose an oversized coin design, the thickness must also be increased to ensure there is enough metal to accept the details of the larger design.
Display - Custom coins are mainly for display in a place and we offer a number of different display options. The display method of challenge coins of different sizes is different. If the challenge coins of too large size are not suitable to carry around.

The challenge coins given to soldiers are oversized in order to honor their accomplishments.

For this reason, all branches have had some type of Oversized Challenge Coin made especially if they engage an enemy force more powerful than themselves so not only do you get credit but also bragging rights!
