It’s hard to find a military intelligence unit or CIA office that doesn’t use the phrase “secret squirrel” in conversation and internal memos. Notably, the phrase originated on television. In 1965, Hanna-Barbera produced a sendup of spy flicks, which starred a squirrel wearing a trench coat. The cartoon was, of course, “Secret Squirrel.” For whatever reason—pleasing alliteration, most likely—the military adopted the phrase, and service members began applying it to all things classified.

Why Stack Silver?
Challenge Coins have traditionally been minted in a zinc alloy, but why buy zinc when you can stack silver with your Challenge Coins?
In the words of SD Bullion, "Some stack silver because it is a proven store of wealth while other silver stackers use it as a system to save capital for the long haul. Some stackers like the notoriety of buying silver bullion in larger quantities. Most would argue they stack silver as a hedge against economic downturns or emergencies."
If you want this challenge coin at a cheaper price point, it is ALSO available in pure copper at a much lower price than silver!
US Shipping only! We will not ship silver out of the country!
* .999 silver is referred to as "three nines fine". It is 99.9% pure, and is the most common maximum purity level bullion sold at the major silver foundries. In contrast, silver coins are typically between 80% and 90% pure, and the silver used in jewelry is often 92.5% pure and is referred to as "925 silver".
