What is a "Challenge Coin" and how does the "Challenge" work?

Although special coins were made for a variety of reasons including presidential elections, Masonic rituals, etc., Challenge coins were ostensibly originally used by US military Special Forces to recognize soldiers for outstanding acts, to boost morale, and to build camaraderie. Today, challenge coins are in use by several hundred military and law enforcement units for those very same reasons. Now, fraternal organizations and clubs are adopting them as well knowing that they DO accomplish those purposes.
Traditionally, "coining" was executed to see if fellow soldiers were carrying their unit's coin. In the Vietnam era this tradition was modified slightly so that the loser of the challenge was obligated to buy a round of drinks. (One American Nameplate staff members emphatically confirms that this was indeed a popular activity!) When coins are serially numbered, the lowest numbered coin wins....
