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 resultated in a number of consequneces for those who could not produce a coin - the most popular required the coinless soldier to buy a round of drinks. That practice continues to be popular today." (Quelle: Symbol Arts; www.symbolarts.com)
