Very nice.

I've a couple of Canadian armoured coins and always looking for more.

Got lots of Aussie armoured coins in my collection - will post pics if anyone is interested.

Hi Mick

I'd look at your Cdn Armd ones and maybe even the Aussie ones too.

There are so many challenge coins now, it's obscene. I get it; cheap easy way to recognize but man oh man, there are these coins everywhere now. May as well collect real coins!!

regards
Darrell

Here's my collection and some spares (picture on right).

Happy to trade spares for other Aussie or Canadian armoured corps coins I don't have.

Hi Mick

Nice collection.

In your first photo, I recognize your Cdn ones. The Corps 75th and School 75th are particularly nice. Are they numbered? The RCACS kit shop sells un-numbered versions.

Not sure what the other is (top left) as there were repeats using the common logo. Also, in your second photo there is a tank in front of the afghan colours; may we see that one a bit better? Is it Cdn?

Sorry, I have none to trade though. I only have coins given to me.

regards
Darrell

I got those Canadian ones of mine from the RCACS kit shop.

That tank one is a 1st Armoured Regiment (Australia) coin - those are their regimental colours (they also never went to Afghanistan). Will try and post pic when I get a chance.

Hi

Another addition from RCACS.

Same on both sides. Made of wood! Helluva good idea for quick cheap and easy coins.

regards
Darrell

So, How long have challenge coins been around? Chap this belonged to was a trooper in R.C.D. during WW11. He passed away 20 years ago. regards, D.J.

Hi D.J.

I can't answer your question but the one you show is the same as mine on page 1. All Dragoons were given one and it stands to reason that some or all the Old Guard got them. Glad-handed out by the bosses too, no doubt. A gift from the Guild of the RCD. I certainly don't recall anyone ever challenging anyone with it. When I served there was only one coin for that.

Can't say what year on that RCD one either. Maybe 1989. Maybe 1992.

regards
Darrell
