ASK FATHER: Religious challenge coins as sacramentals

From a reader…


Can a religious challenge coin (such as the St. Joseph Strong coin) be a sacramental? Whether or not it is or is not a sacramental, can you get a challenge coin blessed?

There is no reason why such a challenge coin could not be blessed, using at least the blessing “ad omnia“.

Would it be a sacramental? Yes, I suppose it would be. At that point you should never use it for some of the usual uses of challenge coins, such as drinking challenges in bars.

And speaking of challenge coins… I still have some from my 25th Anniversary. I am open to exchanges.

If I have any exchanges outstanding, let me know right away by email and I will make sure to get one to you. Sometimes things stack up on me and I get distracted.
