January 4th, Trivia Day, gives cause to celebrate knowledge. How many people know that on Venus it rains metal or that in the Victorian era, special cups were created to prevent men from dunking their moustaches in their tea? It goes without saying that you learn something new all the time!
The word, trivia, was used to describe a place where three roads met in Ancient Rome. In the 1960s, college students made the word popular by trading questions and answers about the popular culture of their youth. Trivia contests ensued and games centered on trivia questions like Trivial Pursuit were created.
Many businesses, organizations, and clubs organize trivia contests as a way of encouraging people to frequent their establishments. A smart marketing move, the host of Trivia Day or Trivia Night gathering benefits from the increase of traffic from the event. This can lead to additional sales and added exposure.
One of the prizes that is regularly awarded to winners of trivia contests is custom challenge coins. The thoughtful gifts double as clever marketing tools. Businesses, organizations, and clubs create coins with their logo or choice of emblem on them. This helps others recognize the image and associate it with the group responsible for organizing the trivia event.
Coins are an obvious winner for a number of different reasons. First and foremost, they’re durable and long lasting. Unlike t-shirts that fade and deteriorate over time, custom coins are around for the long haul and presentation options like coin capsules protect your investment.
Next, they can be created in a way to relay additional trivia facts. For example, one side of the coin can be strictly business-related while the other side of the coin can present a little known fact about the business, organization or club. This is a fun way to tie the prize into the theme of the event.
Last but not least, coins are rich with sentimental value. They’re a token, a memento, a souvenir. They take players back to that game, that achievement, that moment in time where they were a winner. That’s what makes custom coins the prize of choice for many trivia event hosts.
