One of the products that we offer is custom coins. There is a minimum quantity of 100 for each custom design ordered. Our typical standard size for custom coins is 1.75" in diameter with a thickness of 2.5mm. We will work with the Home Office on your behalf to obtain permission for any logo usage that is needed. We already have permission for some usage at the moment. We will work up artwork based upon your needs for your approval, then provide you with a blueprint for approval. Once you approve the blueprint for your coin, it typically takes about 4 - 6 weeks to get them in your hands.

Custom Coin Cost Basics
For a typical coin, with ten or less colors on the front, one color on the back, 1.75" in diameter, 2.5mm thick, pricing is going to start around $415 total, including the mold fees!
We can add other features at an additional cost, such as glitter colors, translucent colors, clear coating, textures, laser engraved sequential numbering, or irregular shapes!
We can customize to your heart's content to bring you the high quality coin of your dreams! Check out the About Us page for some ideas for how to use custom Trail Life USA Challenge Coins for fundraising, to commemorate an Event, camp or High Adventure Trip or for trading with other leaders!

Custom Coin Pricing Full Details
To start with, any custom coin order requires that new molds be made for both the front and back of the coin. We charge $60 per mold. So, for the typical custom order, the mold fees will cost $120. If you decide to use a standard mold that is already available for one side of your coin, such as the Trail Life USA Logo that is the front of our Trailman Oath Coin, that will save you $60, as the mold is already created. We then just have to create a mold for the other side of your coin. (*Note that any custom project that uses any element that is registered by Trail Life USA, needs Home Office approval for the full project. I will work through that process on your behalf, free of charge.)
Next, comes the price per coin. These prices are listed on a per coin basis. There is a minimum order of 100, but once you've reached that minimum, we can order any additional number you choose, even if it is as random as 132. Just multiply the number of coins you wish to purchase, by the appropriate price listed for your quantity! 100 - 299 coins: $2.95 per coin. 300 - 500 Coins: $2.85 per coin. 500 - 999 Coins: 2.75 per coin. 1,000+ Coins: $2.50 per coin.
It is also important to note that we do not charge anything extra based on the plating that you choose. We offer Nickel, silver, antique-silver, antique-fake-gold, antique-copper, antique-bronze, satin-silver, satin-fake-gold, fake-gold, brass, copper, or black nickel plated, all at the same price!
Now, add in the cost of any extras that you wish to add to your coin. These are also priced per coin, so just multiply that cost per coin, by the number of coins you wish to purchase. These available extras include:
Glitter or translucent enamel colors for $0.10 per coin,
Clear coating for $$0.10 per coin, per side,
Laser engraved sequential numbering for $0.15 per coin, per side,
Laser engraved letters or numbers on the edge of the coin for $0.20 per coin, or
An irregular shaped coin can be made for an additional $0.15 per coin.
We are also always looking to expand our offerings, so if you have an idea for further customization, feel free to contact us, and we would love to attempt to create the coin of your dreams!
