Harley-Davidson® Firefighter Service Challenge Coin, 8002923. The Challenge Coin and its history would be worthy of a chapter in a book of military history. Add additional chapters to cover how the Challenging actually takes place. It’s complicated. Suffice to say, the tradition of Challenge Coins has become part of our culture, both inside and outside military circles, where it all began. This is a perfect example of a civilian adaptation of the military challenge coin, a Firefighter Challenge coin. This Challenge Coin is 1.75-inches in diameter, and features the Harley-Davidson’s® firefighter shield or badge. Harley-Davidson® has a rich history of supporting both our nation’s policemen and firefighters. Firefighter badges also have a rich history, and Harley-Davidson® is proud to have their own version of the firefighter badge. The badges that firefighters wear are adorned with symbolism of the history of the firefighter role. The most common symbol, found on this coin, is called the scramble - it’s the center seal of the Firefighter Badge which has a grouping of firefighter tools and symbols, such as ladders, axes, hooks, and a firefighter helmet. As with most firefighter badges, the scramble seal sits in the center of a maltese cross, which has come to symbolize the protection provided by the wearer of the cross and the loyalty with which he serves. For the top part of our badge, a bald eagle sits atop a Harley-Davidson® Bar & Shield®. We salute the brave firefighter men and women who put their lives on the line thousands of times each year. Made under Harley-Davidson® license by SymbolArts, a manufacturer based in Utah. Their coins and badges are known for superior quality, vibrant colors, rich finishes, and for finely crafted, detailed relief. Manufacturer Part Number, 8002923.
