I was asked by a retired Navy Commander to make two Challenge Coin Displays for his coin collection. The display is made from solid walnut and is finished with clear lacquer. Each measures 4.25” x 18” and holds 50 coins.

Looks great! The dark walnut goes well with the colors in the coins .

Looks great! I have quite a few. I was also asked to make one for an Air Force Captain (I think)

Nice project… Currently working on a couple of these and hope they turn out half as well as yours did. Well done.
