Testimonials

We’re incredibly proud of the testimonials that we have received. We strive to provide the best design, quality and customer service using values instilled by the forces and experience gained whilst serving.

“I can’t recommend Challenge Coins UK enough. When our unit base closed we commissioned a staff association coin to commemorate our history, without a rigid concept in mind. Tom was engaging from the beginning (unlike other companies we approached) and guided us through various design ideas, using his experience and expertise to suggest tweeks and improvements.

Challenge Coins UK were always prompt in responding to emails, sending quality pdf graphics with each change. We are absolutely chuffed with the final product.”

HD - Police Aviator (London, UK)

“From the first instance, Challenge Coins UK were faultlessly helpful and reliable. The new design for Commander’s Coins has reinvigorated and updated our stock with a far superior product. Tom responded to our every demand almost immediately and sent through numerous fresh designs, tweaking to our requirements.

In short, we couldn’t be happier with the new coins and will look to Challenge Coins UK in the future.”

“With the Regt having recently re-flagged, a redesign of the CO’s Coin was needed. Challenge Coins UK came highly recommended, and I was not disappointed with the results. From the off Tom was attentive to our individual needs, providing an excellent and almost on the spot design service complete with vivid representations of what the finished coins would look like. Tom produced a cracking design for us, and we are very happy with the finished product.

The Regt will definitely be returning to Challenge Coins UK in future. Proud to support a Veteran.”

“Absolutely cracking job. Communication throughout was almost instantious, always kept informed and and up to date with the process. We have deployed on a large international exercise recently and the other nations really wanted to get their hands on them and managed to swap a few spares and present to other nations. Really well received by all. The fact Challenge Coins UK  is veteran owned is obvious with the dedication shown to the final product!

Would 100% recommend to anyone wanting to get these done!”

I sent Tom my ideas and less than 24 hours later he had finalised a design for my squadron that did the momentous occasion justice! Everyone is impressed with the quality! I highly recommend Tom and Challenge Coins UK!”

“Challenge Coins UK provided an excellent service, responding to a time critical requirement for a US visit shortly after we stood up the Submarine Delivery Agency as an Executive Agency of the MOD. The quality of the coins is fantastic, far better than I have seen previously, and the advice and guidance provided was invaluable, especially around the tricky areas of licensing and trademarks.

Tom having previous military experience really helped smooth the whole process, as he understood exactly what I wanted and remained in good communication throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Challenge Coins UK to all!”

“My order just arrived for over 150 Challenge Coins to commemorate the disbanding of a unit that’s served with distinction for over 75 years.

Communications with Tom has been exemplary throughout, just as you’d expect from someone who has served himself & so understands the importance of this key aspect of business.

We had the design finalised on the second take & the coins were ordered. First contact was made on 4th December with a requirement to receive the order ahead of an event on 19th Jan – It was delivered by courier on 9th Jan, a week earlier than hoped & this with the Christmas/New Year break in between too.
The quality of the coin’s production was superb. The cuts of the design clean & sharp & the colours used vivid.”

In short, my experience with Challenge Coins UK has been nothing short of tremendous & if you’re looking to have coins made, then your search should end here.  Thanks Tom, for making this much less stressful than it could have been.  It’s helped to make this sad occasion a little less sharp.”

“We approached Challenge Coins UK as Tom was in the forces and knew how we worked and what we wanted. From initial design to finished product we were thoroughly impressed with Tom’s keen eye for design as well as the small details. Even with a tight deadline he managed to knock up a brilliant design, make and deliver the finished coins for a great price and superb quality. Everyone is asking who made them.  Thanks again Tom, we couldn’t have asked for more.

In short, my experience with Challenge Coins UK has been nothing short of tremendous & if you’re looking to have coins made, then your search should end here.  Thanks Tom, for making this much less stressful than it could have been.  It’s helped to make this sad occasion a little less sharp.”
