Cold War Combatants Challenge Coins were crafted to honor the men and women who did fight and defended America during the Cold War. The reason Cold War Coins Get Hot is because just as many lives and just as many sacrifices are made during times of peace in a Cold War than in a shooting hot war and a Cold War coin should be made for that reason. Cold Wars last for decades whereby a shooting war may last a couple of years or even less.

America Verses Russia: People Did Die.

Freedom verses Communism and so the story goes and with these two major super powers moving headlong towards a confrontation shortly after the end of World War 2 it could be the smallest spark that could have set off the largest war mankind had ever seen. But it didn’t happen. Or did it?

“People don’t really understand and know that the Cold War was a real war with real casualties. Real people died.” Some 382 Americans were killed as a result of direct enemy action during the Cold War-those military actions between 1945 and 1991 beyond the scope of the Korean and Vietnam wars.

So why did a Cold War Combatants Challenge coin series get designed? Because our Cold War Era Veterans were there and they did fight and they did prepare for a confrontation with the Soviet Union and they do need to be honored.
