How to Order Your Custom Coins
There are several factors to consider when you order a custom designed coin, and we are here to help you every step of the way. Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions about ordering custom coins:
Can you engrave the custom coins? Yes, for an additional charge, we can engrave the coin with a small logo, message or date.
What other custom options do I have? We have many custom options for our clients to choose from, all of which can make your custom coin unique and stunning, including:
- Shiny gold coins made by sandblasting
- 15 different metal plating options including dual plated coins
- 12 different texture options
- Custom shaped coins
- 3D coins
- Brass base metal or upgrade to bronze
- Gemstones or Printed Coins
- Coins with cut outs
- Splash minting
What is splash minting? Splash minting is used to make coin designs extraordinary, creating scenes that look almost real, and even seem to show movement. Special dies are used that allow excess metal to splash out in a sideways direction when the coin is struck. This excess metal is shaved off, leaving a relief that is elegant, distinctive and memorable.
What kind of color options do I have? Custom coins can have a selection of color options to accentuate your design, including:
- Hard or soft enamel
- Soft enamel with epoxy
- Color added to engraving
- PMS color matching
Which custom coin type is best for my needs? Our process is designed to work with your needs. We guide you in creating the initial design, if needed or we can work with you to customize a pre-existing design idea you may have. Our experienced staff can give you suggestions to enhance or modify your design as need in order to ensure that your design is perfectly suited for production. Once you approve a final design, it is die-struck into thick bronze or copper, both sides being struck at the same time, then electroplated, sandblasted and polished. Hard enamel color is added before polishing, and soft enamel added after polishing, but all color is applied by hand.
How long will it take to get my custom coins? Production time varies depending on the style of coin you choose, but it normally takes between 2 to 3 weeks. Rush jobs can usually be accommodated for an additional charge.
