For the Love of Dogs - Engravable Challenge Coin
As thieves of our hearts and seducers of our souls, dogs have bound themselves as irreplaceable companions to man throughout recorded history. This exquisitely minted coin pays tribute to all those canine Casanovas.
This medallion makes a fantastic award for dog shows, with the reverse side open for a custom engraving. Those who care for, shelter, treat, and help support these innocent and devoted creatures would also find this a marvelous gift. Every dog-lover will be as proud to possess this canine memento as they are to hold the leash of a four-legged friend.
Silly and playful, remarkably intelligent, keenly instinctive, endlessly eager-to-please, unwaveringly loyal…all these traits united into a single species have nestled into our hearts for millennia as irreplaceable loyal friends and workers. Whether a pup is springing from a dock for a medal, retrieving its favorite ball, searching for disaster survivors, racing you down the beach, sniffing out dangerous substances, securing a ribbon at a show, carrying ammunitions, alerting you to danger, or helping to keep the couch warm, they are incomparably precious.
This coin pays tribute to all faithful sidekicks – the show dog, the police dog, guide dog, the formidable hunter, the fearless guardian, the lover of retrieving, the hiker, the soldier, the rescuer and the rescued.
Minted in the USA from special deep relief coining dies, struck from solid bronze, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this coin is dedicated to our selfless companions. The obverse displays an impressively detailed depiction of the golden retriever, the Labrador retriever, and the German shepherd. The reverse's perimeter is accented with a dog leash that encircles an open area suitable for a custom engraving. Reward a dog-lover with a medallion that will be as treasured as the canines it honors.
