Custom Challenge Coin of the Month – March 2022
At Unit Coins, we have designed custom commemorative coins for various branches of the Military, from the Air Force to the Marines. As such we always relish the opportunity to also celebrate different groups, communities, and areas of service! This month we are proud to showcase this coin created for the San Mateo Co County SWAT team. This classic custom challenge coin with gold detailing and raised text is a perfect example of our team’s dedication to craftsmanship and skill. Honoring the hard work and dedication of our law enforcement is best observed in the coins we design and create. If interested in gifting one of our coins to your group, team, or unit we encourage you to contact our team of designers! We offer a free consultation where you can discuss any potential ideas, images, or insignias you would like to incorporate into your own, one-of-a-kind coin. The team at Unit Coins offers a wide array of coin sizes, shapes, plating, and custom edging options to best reflect your team. Call us at 1-302-376-9812 to begin the design process!
Design Features & Details
Warm, neutral-toned camouflage is heavily featured in this month’s unit coin. One side of the coin features a detailed depiction of a gunsight, with the phrase “Semper Vigilo,” translated to “always alert,” in bold gold lettering across the top. Meanwhile, at the bottom of the coin’s face reads “Fidens Veneratio,” translated to “trusting veneration” or respect. The phrase is set behind a circular, thick black border.
The other side of the coin’s face features more in terms of detail work. Encircling the same black border reads “Special Weapons and Tactics Sniper Team.” Next, centered in the middle of the coin’s face rests the badge for the San Mateo County police department, complete with a forest green seven-pointed star and a red sword. Above the crest reads, “S.M. S.W.A.T. S.O.” in a black banner.
An essential part of any police force, we at Unit Coins are proud to showcase and celebrate the hard work and bravery of this S.W.A.T. team unit. These everyday heroes consistently place themselves at risk for our safety, and for that, we are grateful to honor them with our craftsmanship. We understand the weight associated with a custom challenge or unit coins and work tirelessly to ensure that each coin produced reflects the characteristics of those being respected. Like those in the armed forces and law enforcement, we don’t cut corners and strive to be better than the day before. If interested in commemorating your group, unit, or brotherhood, our team of designers and craftsmen are here ready to engage in a conversation with you.
