  • Custom Coins Commemorate New Bridge Opening

    Cincinnati, OH – The opening of the new William R. Bennet Bridge which connects the city of Kelowna with the newly formed municipality of Westside was a major event for the citizens of British Columbia.   Described as the centerpiece of a revitalized road network in the Okanagan Lake region, the new 5-lane bridge relieves congestion along Highway 97 and accommodates an average of 46,000 vehicles a day.  The 2 additional lanes will fuel further growth in the regional economy – especially the signature tourism industry – so that by 2017 the bridge is expected to carry an average of 69,000 vehicles per day.  Naturally, city planners wanted to commemorate the […]

  • Journey to Bethlehem a Tradition for Texas Church

    Cincinnati, OH – Nearby sounds of goats braying and cattle lowing are nearly drowned out by the din of commerce as visitors to the marketplace haggle.  Vendor and visitor spar over the price of earthenware pots and handmade leather satchels.  The next stall suddenly emits a puff of smoke and steam as sizzling kebobs – now deemed ready for sale and consumption – are removed from their grill.  The layered aromas from the grill blend with the sweet-smelling hay in an attempt to mitigate the pungent haze from an incense vendor several stalls to the left.  The din of the marketplace – complete with shekels changing hands and being deposited […]

  • Custom Coins Answer the Call for Church of the Nazarene General Assembly

      With their quadrennial General Assembly approaching, officials from Sunday School & Discipleship Ministries International (SDMI) at the Nazarene Global Ministry Center in Lenexa, Kansas, were looking for a giveaway that would be memorable, but not break the bank. They wanted to draw attention to the church’s mission – which, in a word, is discipleship – and they were searching for a tangible reminder they could give to General Assembly attendees visiting their booth. They wanted a token that would make people think “discipleship” each time they saw it. While it had to be memorable and effective, the memento also had to fit into a tight budget. Custom coins answered […]

  • Custom Coins Commemorate Church Groundbreaking

    The most important work carried out by Vaughn Forest Church is completed away from their physical location in Montgomery, Alabama.  But this church has been growing rapidly and needed to expand their facility to accommodate new members.  Naturally, when they broke ground for their new worship center, Senior Pastor Dr. Lawrence Phipps wanted to commemorate the occasion.  So he had custom coins minted for the occasion. “Although there are behind-the scenes activities like preparing plans and gathering permits and approvals, groundbreaking is the first outward sign of the construction process” said Vaughn Forest spokesperson Robyn Wiggins.  “So we wanted to give members something to remember the day.” Wiggins sketched out […]

  • Custom Coins Draw a Crowd to Parker, CO Steakhouse

    Custom coins are alerting residents of Parker Colorado to the presence of Trapper’s Chop House, atop the local Holiday Inn.  But more than merely raising awareness, the coins with a $20 face value are drawing diners to the 4-star steak house.  Although the program is still in its infancy, Trappers is seeing repeat visitors – which is precisely what owner Tom McCann had in mind when he devised this unique marketing program. A Diamond in the Rough When McCann purchased the Parker Holiday Inn last October, he knew that Trapper’s, which occupied the top floor, held a 4-star rating.  What he did not know was what a well-kept secret this […]

  • Promotions- Several Different Ways

    Custom Coins Carry the Theme and the Day Custom coins can have a huge impact on your next event, outing, promotion, or campaign by carrying the theme through to another level.  That’s what we found when we talked to a disparate group that included schools, non-profits, as well as large and small companies  who used coins as part of their overall marketing efforts.  Unlike paper-based products which can be thrown away, there is something uniquely “sticky” about coins that makes people want to keep them.  Which makes using coins a natural extension of many marketing activities. Coins Provide the Hook for Pirate Treasure Theme at Irving Arts Center Event  Each […]

  • Custom Coins Enable Lyndon State College to Reward Community Involvement

    Sometimes it is hard to motivate college students to look beyond the textbooks and the parties to the community of which they are a part.  Lyndon State College in rural Lyndonville, Vermont tried some old fashioned rewards – with impressive results.   Custom coins which serve as “Community Cash” are the cornerstone of the rewards program – the Coins redeemed for raffle prizes at an end-of-semester “Casino Night.” Community Cash coins were awarded to students who took part in community events and programs, like residence hall educational and social programs, campus or community service events, or “whenever students were spotted living the LSC promise” says Leo Sevigny, Associate Dean of Student […]

  • Silver Dollar Fair Coins

    Silver Dollar Fair Promotes $1 Off Admission with Custom Coins

    Silver Dollar Fair Lives Up to Its Name (Cincinnati, OH) – Current residents of Chico, California can’t imagine a year without their beloved Silver Dollar Fair anymore than they can imagine it going by any other name. Turns out, the notoriety of the fair and its name go hand in hand— and it all comes down to the silver dollar. The fair hasn’t always enjoyed such support from the community. For decades, the fair was on again off again—canceled due to gambling, financial issues, or general lack of interest. In the 1950’s, local merchants began pulling their support once and for all, noting a lack of business generated by the […]
