This Deadwood Harley-Davidson® Challenge Coin made of thick, high-quality metal is a great collectible for a friend or a great addition to your collection! The stamped gold coin has an Old West folk hero, lawman, and gunfighter, Wild Bill Hickok standing by a Deadwood saloon and gold pan full of nuggets. Circling around the edges on a black ring is Deadwood Harley-Davidson®, Deadwood, South Dakota. Turn the coin over and the Harley-Davidson® Bar & Shield hovers over Deadwood centered in the middle. Harley-Davidson® circling in the outer black ring of the coin finishes the design. The manufacturer, SymbolArts was founded in 1986 and produces many high-quality items such as jewelry, badges, coins, patches, pins, key chains, and many more collectible items. This challenge coin measures 1.75'' in diameter and is a wonderful reminder of an amazing time in Deadwood, South Dakota.

History of Challenge Coins

Challenge coins surfaced during the World War I era. The practice of carrying a coin designed specifically for a unit was popular with the Army Special Forces. Carrying the coin at all times and presenting it when "challenged" to prove affiliation with that unit resulted in a number of consequences for those who could not produce a coin; the most popular required the coin-less soldier to buy a round of drinks. That practice continues to be popular today.

    Something outside of the norm.....

    Posted by Wink on 14th Aug 2017

    While at Sturgis, I made it a point to go to all of the local HD dealers to purchase a challenge coin from each. I did so for all HD dealers except Deadwood.....was told by staff personnel that "we do not make that challenge coin any longer". After going online and seeing it, I purchased it and the item was shipped in time for me to have when I got home from Sturgis. No clue why personnel there would lie or not be informed about it but aside from that, it's definitely my favorite of all the challenge coins!!!!!
