This design came to me one day when I was trying to design a coin holder no one else has. I searched the internet to see what everyone else was building for a display case and something dawned on me to build an American Flag display. As you can see, this piece is sitting in the Pentagon at this time. This display is built from Oak, Red Oak, American Holy, and Purpleheart woods. The stars are an actual small flag behind glass and it will hold approximately 106 coins. Thanks for looking. Enjoy! If you have any questions about this design or any of my displays, please feel free to e-mail me!

Too cool! I doubt anyone else was building it, but there will be many copycats now. I think it looks great even without coins.

That is just great. Really nice design and I love that you put a real flag in to the design.

Love the coin rack. Great idea. I may have to make a smaller version for my desk at work. I love stuff that looks like the American flag.

Fantastic job and great idea! Being retired military I really enjoy it when people put a spark of patriotism into their designs.

Very nice Challenge Coin Display. I am sure there is sawdust flying right now by people making one JUST like that. Remember, plagiarism is the greatest form of flattery…..

New twist to the old standby coin rack, I think it would be a hot item at any military base.
