Radio Amateurs of Canada is pleased to introduce the special 25th Anniversary Challenge Coin.
The coin was designed by Mike Hutchison and was custom-designed and manufactured by KingPins for RAC. Its design depicts the commitment to a strong 25 years of Amateur Radio with a large maple leaf acknowledging a true sense of Canadian pride.
The back design is the classic RAC logo with a beautiful gold crest and accents.
It is a unique collectable and is a great collectors piece for any member of the Amateur Radio community.
Through the RAC Challenge Coin program, we hope to raise sufficient funds to make RAC stronger and enable it to deliver more services and benefits to our members and to Amateur Radio in Canada and internationally during our next 25 years.
The process for obtaining the special coin is provided below.
