There are two main styles of golf ball marker coins that we help design. The first is a stand-alone golf ball marker. These are similar to one-sided challenge coins, but they’re usually smaller than your average custom challenge coin. Golf has no official rules that outline a standard size for golf ball markers, but they are usually no larger than a quarter. The personalized golf ball markers we help design are usually around 1” in size.
Odds are that putting isn’t your favorite part golf, however, there are few things more satisfying than sinking a 16-foot putt for par or even landing a birdie. Sometimes the only way to make a shot like that happen is to mark your ball with your go-to ball marker, measure out your shot, and take a breath before you’re ready. A lot of golfers have custom golf ball markers that add a little personality to their game and act as a familiar totem, helping them keep a level head and prepare for the perfect shot.
Even though custom ball markers are small, our production team has the ability to create highly detailed coin molds with intricate artwork. Whether you’re planning to include a small version of your team’s logo or some other form of custom artwork, we will take special care to get even the smallest details just right in the coin design.
The second style of golf ball marker is a challenge coin with a custom golf ball marker insert. These coins look just like your everyday challenge coins, but the center of the design is held in place with a magnetic insert. This means that you can remove the coin golf ball markers by simply pressing down on the bottom edge of the marker insert so the edge will pop over the lip of the coin holder and slide right out.
Challenge coins custom made with magnetic inserts are slightly more expensive than your average golf challenge coins because they require two different coin molds. One mold is used to create the magnetic insert ball marker, while another is used to make the coin holder.
Something else to consider is that the magnetic insert will be made from aluminum, while the rest of the coin will be minted with brass, zinc or steel. Aluminum is the only magnetic option. Since the metals are different, there may be a slight inconsistency in the color of the metal plating. However, all of our custom coins are made with the highest quality materials and the techniques that have made us the best free online coin designer on the market.
The best part of working with any challenge coin maker is crafting the perfect design from scratch. Since golf challenge coins with magnetic inserts need two coin molds, you have the opportunity to customize two different coins at once. Customizing both sides of a set of custom golf ball marker inserts adds another layer of personality to a design. Flipping them over in the coin holder will change up the design completely, so it’s like having two different designs for one coin.
