A "coin check" consists of a challenge and a response.

1. RULES:

a. The challenge is initiated by drawing your coin, holding it in the air by whatever means possible and state, scream, shout or otherwise verbally acknowledge that you are initiating a coin check. Another, but less vocal method is to firmly place it on the bar, table, Or floor (this should produce an audible noise which can be easily heard by those being challenged, but try not to leave a permanent imprint). If you accidentally drop your coin and it makes an audible sound upon impact, then you have just "accidentally" initiated a coin check. (This is called paying the price for improper care of your coin."

b. The response consists of all those persons being challenged drawing their coin in a like manner (other organizational coins are invalid). You must produce a coin with YOUR UNIT'S LOGO on it.

c. If you are challenged and are unable to properly respond, you must buy a round of drinks for the challenger and the group being challenged.

d. If everyone being challenged responds in the correct manner, the challenger must buy a round of drinks for all those people he challenged.

e. Failure to buy a round is a despicable crime and will require that you turn-in your Coin to the issuing agency.

2. Coin checks are permitted, ANY TIME, ANY PLACE.

3. There are no exceptions to the rules. They apply to those clothed or unclothed. At the time of the challenge you are permitted one step and an arms reach to locate your coin. If you still cannot reach it -- SORRY ABOUT THAT!

4. A Coin is a coin. Coins attached on belt buckles are considered "belt buckles." Coins on key chains are considered "key chains." Coins placed in a "holder/clasp" and worn around the neck like a necklace are valid and are considered a coin.

UPDATE: 08-01-11
RULES:

1A: Tapping a coin, normally made of brass, somtimes zinc alloy, solid copper, .999 Fine Silver and 24K Gold. Often coins are electroplated. Chromium will withstand 50 years as a plating. Coinbable is currently offering this at the price of a Nickel Challenge Coin. 1 cut-out is required to create a bottle opener. We will waive this fee as well on our new patented bottle opener challenge coin. Bottle openers must be made from zinc alloy. While a lighter material the actual design cannot be reproduced in any other metal coin making. Zinc alloy is a poured metal verse a struck coin. Now you can not only tap, but open the rounds that are deserved. Bars must actually open theirs on premise. The 4 inch dog tag style works best with more leverage.

Who has their coin, medallions, lapel pins, medals, we all have earned them some way or another. Display yours and carry it proudly. Coins are often earned by a handshake. If the shake is completed well a drop should not occur. Don't be in a hurry to slap, tap or slam your coin. 60 seconds is usally the time it takes to hear, run, respond in some form or fashion to locate a coin. Sharing occurs often. I even sold a coin to keep from himself from a check. Funny story.

Organizational Coins, Unit Coins, Business Coins, Thank You Coins, Coins of Excellence, Award Coins, Service Coins, we all share in striving for our best.

1B: Anyone and everyone within the sound of the check is reuired to present his or her coin. Following tradition, however the coin check starts is the following of the same type of check. I have often asked, I bet you don't have your coin. Well if the argument persues the challenge coin check is officially started.

c. If you are challenged and are unable to properly respond, you must buy a round of drinks for the challenger and the group being challenged.

d. If everyone being challenged responds in the correct manner, the challenger must buy a round of drinks for all those people he challenged.

e. Failure to buy a round is a despicable crime and will require that you turn-in your Coin to the issuing agency.

2. Coin checks are permitted, ANY TIME, ANY PLACE.

3. There are no exceptions to the rules. They apply to those clothed or unclothed. At the time of the challenge you are permitted one step and an arms reach to locate your coin. If you still cannot reach it -- SORRY ABOUT THAT! (Time still factors in depeding up predetermined rules and guidelines.)

4. A Coin is a coin. Coins attached on belt buckles are considered "belt buckles." Coins on key chains are considered "key chains." Coins placed in a "holder/clasp" and worn around the neck like a necklace are valid and are considered a coin.
