This Challenge Coin is fashioned with The NFCG logo created by founding member Ray Dodge; the other side displays an award winning carving of a Black Crappie created by Dan Patterson our first President of the NFCG and founding member. Each series of coins will be limited to 100 each, making them collectible.
The next series will have a new fish engraved by an artist held in high regard among our carving community. Don’t miss out, once a series is exhausted it will not be reproduced. We currently have a limited supply of the original.
A challenge coin may be a small coin or medallion, bearing an organization’s insignia or emblem and carried by the organization’s members. Traditionally, they might be given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale. How to challenge; members, when among fellow fish carvers in a social setting, the challenging member will place his or her coin on a counter with a vigorous slap amongst fellow members. Members must then follow suit and place their coins on the counter in the same fashion. Those with-out their coins are obliged to provide or purchase a refreshing spirit to the challenger for failing to carry their coin. Those with their coins are in luck, the challenger is obligated to buy spirits to those who present their coins. The first challenge coin was produced to promote a esprit de corps among the fish carving community.
