Coin History

During WWI pilots carried medallion coins with them as a show of respect, loyalty, oath, and
camaraderie for their unit. This tradition came about after a pilot was shot down, captured, escaped,
and then thought to be a spy at the front lines where they were going to execute him. The only ID the
pilot had to prove his identity was his coin, which saved his life. Ninety years later this tradition still
continues. Soldiers, police officers, fireman and paramedics risk their lives everyday for our safety.
They carry their coin as a personal token symbolizing this devotion and allegiance to their unit. The
Armor of God coin is your personal reminder that you are identified with Christ, and that He is the
one to pledge your love, devotion, and allegiance.
