My small but growing collection of challenge coins. Each one is scanned back and front and the image joined so you can see both sides.

I'll post updates as I get new additions. If anyone has any coins for sale please drop me a PM.

First two are really commemorative coins, quite big at 5cm but look really nice.

Re: Nick's Challenge Coins - New Year Update

Postby nwalch » Sun Jan 01, 2017 7:28 pm

These are some of the ones I picked up from the December Patch Meet. Quite a productive (expensive :)) day and managed to add 16 new coins to my collection plus had a fantastic day.

493 FS Grim Reapers who had a stand selling merch at the Patch meet. Think this is a new one for the squadron. I have a spare one to trade only if anyone is interested. Particularly looking for other USAF or US Naval Aviation coins.
Image

509th Bomb Wing
Image

96th Bomb Squadron
Image

67th Special Operations Squadron. Very nice almost all black (and very difficult to photography well without something to deflect the glare).
Image

Plus some of my end of year additions from elsewhere.

56th Rescue Squadron
Image

VFA-113 Stingers Bee Hive
Image

VFA-213 Fighting Blacklions
Image

As always If anyone has any coins for sale or trade please drop me a PM with what you have and I can send you my updated trades list.

Thanks Dan. Yes Definitely very lucky. Apparently only 8 of each came back from the Squadron.

Absolutely Gary. Always amongst my favorites. Probably got more USN Aviation coins than any other type.

Nice haul mate,

Not sure if you're intrested. I've seen 40 Sqn BAF are offering a SAR Diver coin via Facebook, not sure if they are still available or shipping to the UK though :lol:
