Illustrate your beliefs beautifully with custom coins.

As an Easter gift for his congregation, a minister from a church in the southwest asked us to create a special coin. He sent us a digital image of a previous coin, in which the images were created in 2-D. He wanted to change the text and enhance the images.

On the front of the 1.5-inch antique bronze coin is a man in armor kneeling. He is wearing an armored chest plate and holding a sword. The image is tied to the Bible verse, Ephesians 6:10-18. The verse states: Put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

On the back of the coin features Jesus on the cross with two crosses behind him. The Bible verse, Revelations 22:13 is highlighted.

The minister not only changed his original text but also increased the amount from three to six phrases. Normally, that amount may overwhelm an image, but on a coin, there is added space on the outside and inside circles. Our designer also decreased the size of the text on the inside circles to ease the eyes and keep interest.

To enhance the figures, our designer ordered a special 3-D rendering. The figures in 3-D look like molded sculptures but are created in a subtle relief, much like those on U.S. coins. To encapsulate the text and images, our designer also added a rope line edge to the outside of the coin.
