The city of Havelock gave coins as a way to say thank you to all the people who pitched in their time in the creation, planning, and construction of the city’s 911 monument. They wanted to ensure that all those who participated were given a token of appreciation that commemorated their efforts. It is a common practice for cities, fire departments, and police departments to receive a piece of the World Trade Center to create memorials for those that were affected by the 911 attacks.
An article from the New York Times explains this practice. Full of symbolism, custom challenge coins have been used by the military and civil service employees for years as the ultimate honor. Recipients of custom challenge coins feel valued and proud of their accomplishments. That’s why they are the first to show off their awards in their homes or offices.
