The purpose of a 'Challenge Coin' is a small coin or medallion, bearing an organization's insignia or emblem and carried by the organization's members. Typically collected and traded by service members and law enforcement personnel.
Traditionally, they might be given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale, raise awareness and inspire the fellowship.
