How To Order Your Custom Coins

There are several factors to consider when you order a custom made 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 company coins, geocoins, and challenge coins:

Yes, for an additional charge, we can engrave the logo coin, challenge coin, or geocoin with a small logo, message or date.
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
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.
Custom made 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
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.
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.
Because we provide all design and artwork at no charge and have low minimum quantities. We give all of our customers the best quality and the best prices, with fast production times and top-notch customer service.

custom-company-coinsHow long does my custom made coin die last?
We keep dies for three years from the time you order and after that, your die or mold will be recycled. However, you will not be charged for dies if you reorder within 3 years.

We do offer a service for $40.00 that will insure your dies will be kept and ready for you to use even after three years. Die fees range from $45.00 to $400.00.

The $40.00 insurance might not be for everyone but in some case it just makes sense. If you plan on placing future orders for the same product, we recommend die & mold insurance.

Step one is to contact us and we will provide you with a quote for your custom coins and we will also create a proof for your approval!
