Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web
The SpyderCoin ’17 is a custom-minted coin that honors Spyderco’s longstanding support of our nation’s military and law enforcement personnel, their commitment to protecting the innocent, and their dedication to preserving our way of life. A symbolic statement of our company values, it reminds us that “It is the responsibility of good to stop evil from hurting the innocent” and encourages us to “Never give up,” “Never back up,” and “Never back down.” This handsome antique-bronze-finished coin has a unique Reuleaux triangle shape and is proudly stamped with the Spyderco logo and the year “2017.”

Spyderco has made a so-called WarriorChip Challenge Coins around 2012 as part of Spyderco's Op-Focus program and promotion, as explained by Michael Janich on the Spyderco online discussion forum. And around 2015, Spyderco also made a more traditional Spyderco challenge coin. A picture can be seen on the Spyderco online discussion forum. Both of these coins were never offered commercially.
