ARMY v NAVY Challenge Coin

#1
Gundulph and I have taken the plunge and designed an ARMY v NAVY challenge coin. We are covering all the costs of the dies and initial batches. There will be four options:-

Two different reverses and two finishes, antique Gold or Antique Silver , both on black enamel.

Initially we will donate £1 per coin to Holidays4Heroes until our outlay is recouped, we will then reassess the donation capacity on the coins dependant on volume produced/sold.

You can PRE Order the first batch now here: Online Shop

We are seeking ARRSErs help in two ways,

1. Buying the coins, obviously

2. Spreading the word amongst the various Units / Rugby reps / contingents who attend. we can do a bulk deal for units if required.

Given the amount of people who go, we have the potential to raise a good deal of cash for Hamster boy to blow on a piss up, or take some crips to Spain.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, your assistance is greatly appreciated.

The pen is not for me, it will be ANOTHER Christmas present for the lad. He wants a remote control Chinook though, so he can buzz the dog. Evil bastard.

I did have a look to see how it would look in the design, but the Army Logo or even the crossed swords on their own weren't as effective as the SA80, all the images you see will be in a 3D raised effect on the coin so will look pretty damn good actually on the coin.

We should put a warning on these ones Not to do a Bar Challenge while at the Army v Navy as a couple of the Bars host 5,000 or more! stick to those individual Challenges, if you know a mate has an Army v Navy coin then Challenge Him/Her/It and get a Free Pint...

The Antique Silver & Gold Images will all be in a raised 3D effect...

The front of the coin is based on the iconic 5 tonne 'bronze' of rugby line-out by sculptor Gerald Laing.



At its' spot at the Twickenham Stadium on the South Stand piazza it is engraved around the bottom of the statue with the five core values of the game of rugby union – teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship – to ensure they have a lasting legacy at the home of England rugby.

Thanks go to K13_EOD for the excellent suggestion for the front of the coin, it works really well and will look great in the raised 3D effect...

And he's not kidding, as they are actually made of Bronze metal... The FAA doing their hair while their guns were captured? that I am not too sure about ...
