In this day in age, we all appreciate multifaceted products. We love our smart phone that doubles as a flashlight or a pen that doubles as a laser pointer. It’s no wonder that the Challenge Coin Bottle Opener has taken the world by storm. These two products are forces to be reckon with on their own accord, but combined they create a superior invention.
Challenge Coins first originated during World War 1. The story goes that a lieutenant (his name not known) ordered bronze coins and bestowed them upon his unit. Now Challenge Coins are used by sororities , fraternities , companies and organizations. There is rarely a challenge associated with Challenge coins anymore, they are now just given to unify and build morale.
The bottle opener was invented by William Painter. Mr. Painter is responsible for creating 85 inventions. William Painter’s legacy lives on, as he was inducted in the Hall of Fame for inventors in 2006.
