The history of the challenge coin dates back to World War I, when an
American pilot was shot down and captured in Germany.
While escaping from the grasp of the Germans, the pilot made his way to
France, where they believed he was a spy and sentenced him to be
executed. To prove his identity and save his life, he revealed a bronze
medallion with his flying squadron's emblem, confirming that he was an
American pilot. The French spared his life and celebrated by giving him
a bottle of wine instead.
After this incident, it became a tradition that all members of the
squadron carried their medallion, sparking challenge coins to become a
trademark for military tradition and pride.
