    I like the idea of creating revenue for the site.

    This is Jeffrey from coinable.com, if you would like any further assistance, please let me know. You may contact me at sales@coinable.com or reply in this forum. I will check it infrequently to see if I may assist. Yes the cost of the production is spot + production charge, plus die fees.

    The silver bullets would not require a die. Just inscription costs. Say SGN at the upper part of the "case", user name at bottom.

    Pure .999 silver coins have to be round.

    Re: SGN challenge coins

    OK so here is my take on this. The whole idea of a challenge coin is this. They are "Supposed" To be given to a person who has gone above and beyond. They are often transferred form the giver to the recipient in a hand shake. Now days every swinging dick has one. It seems that lots of units gave them to every member for just deploying. Not that that is any small sacrifice. Being deployed was never a reason to be presented a coin in the past. But In the 60's The green berets and LRRPS/Rangers started to tradition with coins going to serious fire eaters. Then it trickled down to other units, and so on.

    I think it is only right that they be presented by one of the Admin or mods.

    Otherwise it kinda looses its meaning. And can be related to a P X commando.

    I agree with you on that completely. But I am sure that Admin and Mods don't want to shell out $800-$1200 for dies and spot ($23 currently) for each round they have to buy from their own pocket. However, SGN can make some money for events and such by creating a coin. It could be called a "membership" coin if you like.
