Although far from as popular as military challenge coins, FD coins are becoming more and more common in the past years. They are a great way to raise money and boost morale. Many Fire departments are have challenge coins made to give out to people who donate money, or help the department in many different ways. Along with handing one of them to the brave fire fighters who run into what everyone else is running away from.
Common Fire Department challenge coins are shaped in the shape of the Maltese Cross or at least bare it. They can quickly turn a $5 – $10 donation into a $25 donation or higher. I personally think every fire department should be doing this.
