The way I remember it working was if you challenged someone to produce their coin you had to state whether it is for a drink or round of drinks before challenging.  Participant(s) can't take more than 4 steps to produce the coin.  If they can't produce it, they buy drink(s).  If they do produce the coin then you buy the drink(s).

The challenge coins have evolved over time to just be a nice memento from the different military organizations that you have served in with typically one side of the coin being the military service branch logo (Air Force, Navy, etc.) and the other side being a logo/design more specific to your unit. I have several from the different units I served with and have them on my home office as a nice memory.

From Wikipedia:
"A challenge coin may be a small coin or medallion, bearing an organizationís insignia or emblem and carried by the organizationís members. Traditionally, they might be given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale. In addition, they are also collected by service members and law enforcement personnel."

Also used to determine who's paying for the next round.
or so I've heard...

I'm trying to track down a challenge coin for Air Force Metrology, even better if it's specific to Edwards AFB.
Also, coincidentally, a challenge coin for Edwards AFB
Any help would be most appreciated.

(any leads on a challenge coin for Army TMDE, but with ye olde cop badge would be nice as well)
Thanks
