Merchant Category: CREATING COINS FOR OUR HEROES
Main Products and Services: Our main products are challenge coins for all branches of the Military, Fire, Rescue, and Police Officers. Although we do glassware, wearable's, patches, and even poker chips that look like challenge coins. The challenge coin accounts for 99% of our business. -Unit Coins
Company Description: We Care! We don't just care about the next sale or the next price quotation to write.We care deeply about our customers. They are the reason we can sleep quietly at night. I am a veteran and Heather (wife & partner) and I are extremely patriotic. Our customers work 24/7, and so do we. That surprises a lot of them. To us this is more than just a job, it is our way of supporting the people who lay down their lives for us.
Company History: The history of Unit Coins actually got its start on 9-11-01. When we were attacked we were devastated and at our age we knew there was nothing we could do to help. Or so we thought. We soon found out that a lot of folks were creating ways to directly support our troops. One such operation offered us the opportunity to "adopt a soldier". We did and it turned out to be an experience that changed our livers in many ways. The soldier we adopted was deployed so our initial method of contact was email and packages. When his deployment was over he was stationed on the east coast, only about three hours from us. Now we would get to meet our soldier. On his first visit he brought his entire collection of challenge coins to show us. I was struck with the high degree of pride he showed in the collection. He had more than 50 coins and he had a story for each one of them; how he got them, where he was at the time, who presented it, and what he was awarded for with the coins. Since I had a background in promotional advertising I immediately know how to make these coins. As our visits became more and more frequent, so did my interest in Challenge coins. After considerable study of the market we decided to start our own challenge coin business. We launched our website Memorial Day 2006 and have never been happier. Unit Coins allows us to interact with and provide support for our military and first responders on a daily basis. - Unit Coins

"Col is very pleased with his coins and we were able to hand them out at the awards banquet. He said that they were 'really slick', which is one of his highest compliments. Everyone who has seen them wants to earn one and I heard several comments like 'this is really unique', 'that's a nice coin' and just plain 'wow'. We were very pleased with your professionalism and speed. Col saw fit to present me with #100. I will be displaying it on my desk in a special coin holder all it's own. Thank you so much for making it happen for us!" 1ST LT - USAF
"I have presented about twenty of the coins to various people and they all really like it. A few others asked if I would give them my point of contact. I figure the best form of flattery is someone who copies, so I was happy to oblige. As a matter of fact I will send all references to you. Thanks again and keep up the great work that you guys do!" SGTMAJ - USMC

"As promised I have passed out your information to all my comrades and I hope they will utilize your service as well." CPT - US Army
"Heather - we received the coins today in Afghanistan. What an awesome job! Both my commander and command sergeant major said your coinwork was significantly better than the previous vendor. The colors are much more vivid and the detail on the ranks is spectacular. Every bit of this transaction from working the quote and the artwork has been pleasurable. The end result just iced the cake. Thanks so much!" MAJ - US ARMY
Heather,"We received our coins on Friday, the 26th of March. My personal commanders coin was also included.

You guys are the best, thanks again for everything." Petty Officer - USN
