Firefighter Challenge Coin History and Meaning

A firefighter challenge coin is a small coin or medallion that depicts an organization’s emblem or insignia. It’s carried by members as of the organization as proof of their membership. It is also often awarded to members as a sign of their achievements. Although it is priceless, it’s value to members is significant.

Common designs for these collector’s coins can include St. Florian and the Maltese Cross.

St. Florian Fire House Challenge Coins

Florian is the patron saint of firefighters and he is often pictured on the challenge coins they carry. He rose to the ranks of the Roman imperial army and was charged with leading fire brigades. Saint Florian is often depicted as a Roman solider pouring a pitcher of water over a fire and he is said to offer protection over the fears of firefighters.

Maltese Cross Fire Department Challenge Coins

The Maltese cross features 8 points that join into 4 v-shaped sections at their vertexes and was a symbol of the Knights of the Royal Order of Malta. Over time, the Maltese cross has been adopted by many organizations, including firefighters, into their insignia. Maltese cross challenge coins are a reminder of honor and duty. The meaning of the 8 points represent their calls to duty as follows:

  1. To live in truth
  2. To have faith
  3. To repent one's sins
  4. To give proof of humility
  5. To love justice
  6. To be merciful
  7. To be sincere and wholehearted
  8. To endure persecution
