    Same thing as others-- unit coins.

    They usually are highly valued by folks who actually served in the units.

    They have minimal monetary value, but are collected.

    I think these are referred to as "challenge coins"
    see history of challenge coins here:

    The first one is given to Airmen upon graduation from Air Force basic training. They started that one in the last 10 years or so. The second one is from the 5th Comm Gp, as you can see. They are an Air Force combat communications unit, often going into bare bones places and setting up initial communications. They are highly mobile and deploy around the world.
