Question by tobeconn44: Marine Corps Question!!!?
what does it mean if higher ranking marine awards you with a coin? I think they're called challenge coins? It has their rank and United States marine Corps on it.
Is a gunnery Sgt. a high rank?
what do these coins symbolize? If anything? is this something important or just something that marines trade off and on? please look at other extened details

Ok...yea they can be used as challenge coins....basically if you were at a bar or anywhere there's drinks with a Marine and one of you whips out a Challenge coin then the Marine who has the highest ranking coin on him wins a drink...the loser buys.

    Sorry, I am “old Corps” and this must be a new corps thing. I am interesting in hearing about it too.

    The only coins given away in the old corps was when you were the first enlisted man to salute a newly commisioned officer. My brother gave me a silver dollar when I was the first enlisted man to salute him. I got 2 others that day, but I sold those 2.
