Who collects challenge coins and what cool ones relating to the space program do you have?

I have a growing collection, trying to work on setting up a Flickr account so I can post some here. There is quite an array of coins, from not just the various armed services, but many contractors for the space program.

I have a few DoD shuttle support, Orion EFT, USAF and Navy space related coins. I have a large quantity of contractor coins/medallions detailing the space program and from the last four programs (Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and shuttle).

I really don't have a specific program or theme that I'm going for. I have been seeing the space station expedition medallions and wouldn't mind collecting them.

I just picked up challenge coins from the Astronaut Office, for the NBL anniversary and from Scott Tingle. They are all really cool.

I have around 300 or so space related challenge coins. I have ULA, LSP and Air Force 30th/45th Space Wing and 4th/5th SLS launch coins. I try to get the spacecraft program coins for the same launches.

I also have Air Force space organization collections from Hq Air Force Space Command; 45th, 30th, 50th and 460th Space Wings; various Space and Missile System Center program offices; range, tracking sites and other groups.

I have a large NRO organization collection, both overt and covert groups.

I have some NASA organization coins, as well as commercial companies, Army and Navy space orgs.

I just picked up a Flight Operations coin that has writing all around it unlike the patch that does not.
