    It's a challenger coin. Doesn't look that old.

    It's a "coin." These are given by senior officers to anyone they think deserves it. The man who gave it is easily researched online.
    And reading the other forum where you posted, I doubt very much if he would want it back, it was not issued to him, but was one of several he would have had to give away.
    Nice item.

    I've seen Presidential ones selling for $60.00, so it's probably not worth a lot. Lots of people collect these though. Why not hang onto it?

    I think there are people who would appreciate it more. It doesn't really mean anything to me and it would be better to pass it onto a collector.

    They vary in value. Usually depends on how detailed and colorful it is, and what it represents. I have one from the presidential helicopter squadron communications unit. Luckily I knew a marine major in that unit so it was free. I have a few others from varying organizations and they cost around $20 I think. Been a while since I bought one. I'd say yours might be worth around $40-50, based on the detailed design. I don't think there is a huge collector market for these coins.
