BCGA Honour Coin Keychain Version
***THIS IS THE KEYCHAIN VERSION OF THE HONOUR COIN***
(Black enamel may chip over time from contact with keys giving it the vintage look)
The keychain version of the coin is meant as a personal memento of the BCGA and lets others know that you are part of the vibrant community and dresses up your keys a little. The original concept of the honour coin was to use it to recognize others. This is still the case however the key ring version is mean to be bought for yourself while the non-keychain version is meant to be a recognition item to give to others for good deeds.
ABOUT THE HONOUR COIN CONCEPT
The BCGA Honour Coin has been introduced as a way for BCGA Members to give a memento or token of recognition. These custom coins are meant to be purchased by members for the purpose of gifting them to others. The idea is for these coins to truly mean something and have value that is not monetary but sentimental.
Buy a few to keep in your flight bag to award to deserving individuals.
Giving or receiving an honour coin is a sign of appreciation and respect.
Reasons for gifting an honour coin may Include but are not limited to:
- Recognition of a good deed.
- Recognition of someone that has gone above and beyond.
- Recognition of a flying accomplishment such as a solo, license or rating.
- Token of thanks for a flight instructor, ramp attendant, flying club member or mentor.
- Memento of a first flight for a child or adult as pilot or passenger.
- Memento for that one passenger that is terrified of flying but took to the air anyway.
- Token of appreciation for that airline employee that went the extra mile.
- Memento to give to a visiting pilot or when visiting another pilot from outside BC.
The reasons for gifting a Honour Coin are limited only by your imagination. The more special the reason for gifting one the more valuable the coin becomes to the recipient.
If you've been gifted coins from multiple people, consider gifting one to a deserving individual if the opportunity presents itself.
If you gift a coin consider sharing with us why you gifted the coin and to whom with the community so that we can all enjoy the act of recognition. (Facebook: BC General Aviation / Instagram: @bcgeneralaviation / Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) #bcgahonourcoin
