Every new member will receive the initial Welcome Coin. Each coin is numbered and includes The Highground logo, as well as a “welcome” statement. Subsequent coins will include designs based on The Highground tributes as well as historically-significant pieces from events and The Highground Museum. Important note: These program coins will never be sold in The Highground Gift Shop; however, coins can be donated back to The Highground and then offered at auction with proceeds going toward supporting The Highground’s mission-based programs.
How we decide when we will run the next mint
Each year, the Challenge Coin Team and The Executive Director will come to an agreement regarding how many coins will be introduced for that given year. At random times throughout the year, one of the team members will run the list of active pledgees. That number will help determine how many of each type of coin will be ordered. It is important to note that we will randomly select a day and pull the list of all CURRENT pledgees. The number of people on active status will be the number of coins ordered on that day. In addition, we will not announce the dates that have been selected. That’s why we strongly encourage members to remain active in the program. If someone is not active on the selected day, they will not receive the next coin in the series. Again, these days will be selected randomly throughout the year. The more program members we get, the more coins we will mint. That makes it even more important for members to get their friends signed up—hence the challenge!
