Description[edit]

The BattleTech Challenge Coins are a series of thirty circular or pentagonal coins with a black enamel coating that were announced online by Catalyst Game Labs as a reward item available their crowdfunding effort for the BattleTech: Clan Invasion [Kickstarter campaign] which ran from 18 July 2019 to August 18 2019. Initially, only a small number of designs were available, but various stretch level goals expanded the range of coin designs available. The stretch goals were all achieved, initially unlocking each of the original Clans selected for Operation REVIVAL, then the Homeworld Clans and Great Houses, followed by two mercenary commands, Clans that had been annihilated or absorbed prior to Operation REVIVAL, and finally ComStar and the Free Rasalhague Republic. Those coins representing the Clans were pentagonal, while those for Inner Sphere factions were circular. Included as a Great House option was the Federated Commonwealth, and during the Kickstarter process for defining the stretch goals, those pledged at the highest two levels of pledge were consulted on designs to be included.

Product Description[edit]

From the Diamond Shark merchant caste (also known as our friends from Norse Foundry) comes one special edition Challenge Coin designed for each of the Clans and Great Houses.

Availability[edit]

All of those backing the Kickstarter had the option to add Challenge Coins to their pledge as add-on items, at a cost of $10 USD per coin. Various pledge levels received quantities of free coins as a part of their pledge: 1 coin ($20 USD and above), 4 coins ($600+ USD pledge), 6 coins ($150 USD retailer-only pledge) and 8 coins ($5,000 USD pledge). There was also the option to purchase a Challenge Coins Collector Set containing all 30 faction coins for $250 USD as an add-on.

Notes[edit]

  • The statement that "black enamel coins will be exclusive to this Kickstarter" made in the description of the Challenge Coins in the Add-Ons section of the Kickstarter advert may imply that alternative issues of these coins using a coating other than black enamel may be in development.
