What To Consider When Creating Your Custom Made Coin

Sizing & Custom Shapes

Monterey Company features state of the art equipment, making both the size and the shape of your coin customizable. The most commonly requested sizes are 1.5, 1.75 and 2 inches and are generally fashioned into the round, flat shape. But, like most of the things we do, these features can be specialized. 

Regarding shaping your coin, having your design follow the outline of your logo is a fun way to add character to your customization. And the best part is, there are no limits to producing the shape you’re after. Because of our stamping or casting process, your personalized coins can feature unique cutout areas, can have a varied thickness, and feature an arched face. You can add function to your design by shaping it into a bottle opener or into a dog tag as well. So work with one of our talented designers to discuss your endless options for the size and the shape of your custom coin creation.

Finish & Plating

The finish you choose can drastically change the look, feel, and general aesthetic of your design. Fortunately, at the Monterey Company, we offer many stylistic varieties when it comes to finishing your coin.

  • Antique finishes are commonly used, as they add a vintage look and feel to your design that is unparalleled. At Monterey Company, our antique finishes are available in a multitude of materials, with the most popular being antique copper, bronze, and silver.
  • Shiny finishes are a great option, especially when adding a textured background. Directly contrasting the antique finishing option, a shiny finish features the brilliance of the metals layered atop the base metal. This layered metal effect is called plating and can be achieved in gold, copper, silver, and true black varieties. For additional dimension, a dual-plating option is available, wherein more than one plated metal is used in your custom made coin design.
  • Epoxy finishes are also available for your custom coin at Monterey Company. Giving your design a clean, glass-like coating, an epoxy finish is a great way to protect and preserve the color, dimension, and integrity of your design. An epoxy finish can be applied in a variety of thicknesses, from simply a thin protective layer to a thick, smooth, dome-like layer, collectively preventing the scratching, fading, and tarnishing your coin may otherwise be susceptible to.

Material & Metal Options

We offer a variety of materials when it comes to choosing the base metal for your custom coin creation. Different metals lend themselves to different stylistic options, so working with a designer to discern which metal is the best option is always a good idea. The three main metals we work with are bronze coins, brass, and cast.

  • Bronze and brass are the most common metals requested by our customers, as they work well for designs featuring both raised and recessed details, intricacies, or designs that are represented in 2 dimensions. Additionally, bronze and brass coins are easy to mass produce, making them the perfect base metals for large or recurring orders.
  • Casting is another great option, made by filling a mold with molten material. Cast coins show off unique detailing and textures, making them a good option for your 3-dimensional design. They also tend to be lighter, and consequently more cost-effective.

Popular Coin Styles
