The creation of a custom historical coin is one that will go down in history.
We have so many amazing historical and reenactment societies come to us for help in creating pins, coins, and medals. Many are membership pieces that identify those that belong to a group and what the group is. But more and more when reenactments take place, careful research is done to learn and understand a coin, or medal that was given out at that specific event and then coming up with a slight variation of it, creating it and giving them out to those involved.
They are often used as part of the reenactment as well. This has to lead to a whole new variety of custom coins and medals to be made by specialty groups because they add to the realism of reenactments.
