ITS Challenge Coin (Spy Coins Edition)

Covert Currency


If you have secrets you prefer remain that way, or just feel like reliving the rush of Cold War espionage (nuclear fallout notwithstanding), then the Spy Coin Edition ITS Challenge Coin ($30) is for you.

Today, there’s a thriving community centered around collecting these coins.
