Evolution of Honor: From Tradition to Creativity in Military Challenge Coins

Challenge coins have been a symbol of camaraderie and honor within the military and naval circles for centuries. These tokens carry stories of valor, dedication, and unity. 

Over the years these coins have evolved in design. Now they have the ability to be all different shapes and sizes, customized to represent all different platoons, achievements, and events. Much like a coin made by one of our All About Challenge Coins customers who created a beautiful coin that is paired with a Gator shaped coin holder.


Legacy of Excellence: The USS Harper's Ferry and the 'Gator Navy'

The USS Harper's Ferry (LSD 49) is no ordinary vessel. It proudly serves as an amphibious transport ship, operating in shallow waters close to the shore. This unique role has earned it the affectionate nickname "Gator Navy''. 

The moniker is fitting, as these ships bear a striking resemblance to their reptilian namesake – the alligator. The "Gator Navy'' represents a legacy of amphibious excellence, and the USS Harper's Ferry embodies this tradition.


Crafting Naval Legacy with this Custom Coin Set

Commanding Officer Gabriel Burgi of the USS Harper's Ferry had a vision – to create a three-piece coin set that would encapsulate the essence of the "Gator Navy''. At the heart of this set lies the USS Harper's Ferry custom crafted challenge coin, with color on both sides lines with gold metal, is a masterfully crafted piece. This coin, with its intricate design, seeks to honor the dedication and service of those aboard the USS Harper's Ferry.

What truly sets this coin apart is the 3D alligator head coin holder that cradles the USS Harper's Ferry Coin. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this coin holder replicates the fierce yet majestic appearance of an alligator's head. As you can imagine, it adds a stunning dimension to the coin, bringing the "Gator Navy'' theme to life.
