TROY for Troops Challenge Coin

The Student Government Association has an initiative to support our troops currently serving overseas who have a Troy connection - the Troy University Troy for Troops challenge coins. Challenge coins are collector’s items for military men and women.  Troy students, faculty, staff and alumni may send us the name of a loved one currently deployed overseas and the SGA will send them a Troy for Troops challenge coin.  Please email the SGA advisor, Barbara Patterson, bpatters@troy.edu, their name and address and how they are affiliated with Troy and a coin  and letter will be mailed out to them. 

This program is possible with the support of individuals buying the coins. If you would like to support this program financially, you may purchase a challenge coin and know that your purchase helps us to continue sending challenge coins out to currently deployed service members.  Challenge coins are a wonderful gift for service members. Cost for a challenge coin is $10 and orders are being taken now. If the coin must be mailed, the cost is $13.00.  Coins are an inch and a half in diameter.  Here's how to order:

  • If you are on the Troy campus you may stop by the Troy SGA office, Trojan Center 215 and pay by cash, check, Venmo or Cashapp and receive your coin.
  • If you are not on the Troy campus and wish to pay by Venmo @TroyLead or CashApp $troylead, you will pay $13.00 and put your name and Troy Challenge Coin in the payment line and then email bpatters@troy.edu the mailing information of where to send the coin.
  • If you are not on the Troy campus and wish to pay by check, you will pay $13.00 made out to Troy SGA and mail that check and include your name, email, and the mailing address to send the coin to.  This will be mailed to:

                                         Troy University SGA
                                         Trojan Center 215
                                         Troy, AL 36082

We are not able to take e-checks or credit cards.

Thank you for the overwhelming support we have received to continue this program.
