Challenge Coin, Centennial Park Commemorative
NEW! Only 150 in this series and Individually marked 1 of 150! Commemorates the 9/20/1953 formal donation of 576 to Centennial Park, thus saving it from the scrapper’s torch. The Parthenon and roll into the park on one side, and the 1953 date on the other – of course we included a cutting torch! This beautiful, enameled metal 2″ double sided 576 Challenge Coin weighs in at 1.5 ounces and ready to be gifted to a fellow railroad enthusiast, or introduce a new fan to the 576 and it’s history in Nashville.
Historically, challenge coins were collected by service members and law enforcement personnel, and were presented by unit commanders in recognition of special achievement by a member of the unit. They could also be exchanged in recognition of visits to an organization.
