Prizes for Huzzah!

My friend Jose of Fun Elements made these for me as participation prizes for Huzzah!
 Wooden Challenge Coins I figured these would be a fun item to give to participants in my game.  Jose wasn't sure what version of the french flag I would like so he made me couple of option.
 Heads Version 1 Since my blog is included players will be able to find pictures of the game after ward. This is my favorite version.
 Heads Version 2 This is the second version and while not as good as the first it still looks good.  There is also a 3rd version but the French flag didn't come out as well
Tails.  For those who don't know challenge coins are produced by military units for members or special guests or others they wish to honor. There is a little custom associated with these Coins that your Fencing Frog Challenge coin may or may not be accepted for (from Wikipedia):
"The tradition of a challenge is the most common way to ensure that members are carrying their unit's coin. The rules of a challenge are not always formalized for a unit, and may vary between organizations. The challenge only applies to those members that have been given a coin formally by their unit. This may lead to some controversy when challenges are initiated between members of different organizations and is not recommended. The tradition of the coin challenge is meant to be a source of morale in a unit, and forcing the challenge can cause a reverse effect.
The challenge, which can be made at any time, begins with the challenger drawing his/her coin, and slapping or placing the coin on the table or bar. In noisy environments, continuously rapping the challenge coin on a surface may initiate the challenge. (Accidentally dropping a challenge coin is considered to be a deliberate challenge to all present.) Everyone being challenged must immediately produce the coin for their organization and anyone failing to do so must buy a round of drinks for the challenger and everyone else who has their challenge coin. However, should everyone challenged be able to produce their coin, the challenger must buy a round of drinks for the group.
While most holders of challenge coins usually carry them in their pockets or in some other readily accessible place on their persons, most versions of the rules permit a challenged person "a step and a reach" (particularly useful if one is challenged in the shower, a tradition in the Navy).
Variants of the rules include the following. If someone is able to steal a challenge coin, everyone in the group must buy a drink for that person. During a challenge, everyone in the group must buy a drink for the holder of the highest-ranking[clarification needed] coin. Some units provide strict time limits to respond to a challenge."
