Questions & Answers About Making Customized Coins
Coins are made using these four metals:
- Bronze: The strongest of base metal used in manufacturing coins.
- Brass: Strong like brass but offer better detailing.
- Copper: This metal is the best option when 3D sculpting is needed.
- Zinc: This alloy can be used when your custom coin requires small details and cut outs.
Casting coins from zinc: Zinc coins are made by filling a mold with molten material. Casting shows off unique detailing and textures, making it a great option for images needing sculpted look. Casted coins tend to be lighter, and as a result, more cost-effective pricing.
All metals allow for enameling, epoxy, engraving and diamond cut edges.ome text...

- Minting is a process that hydraulically presses your image into the metal, unlike stamping or die-striking. This approach creates a mirror-like surface without the imperfections of other techniques.
- 2D images have two layers with a background and a raised surface, making them ideal for silhouettes. This style is thinner and lighter, which also means it has a lower price point.
- 3D images look sculpted and include a level of detail that isn’t possible in two-dimensions. This style can accommodate raised and recessed areas and curves that make it perfect for logos with your favorite people, animals, and landscapes.
- Diamond-Cut Edges come in wave cuts and rope styles. We have the largest selection of edge selections.
- Engraving: We can engrave serial numbers, words, or phrases. You can also engrave the rim for a custom service marking.
Popular Coin Sizes:
The favorite size coin for most companies is 1.75" Coins can be made into any customized shape and can be minted on one or two side using a standard die striking press or they can be minted using a hydraulic press that allows for a mirror finish. Here are the three most manufactured coin sizes.
Adding Enamel Color
Enameling is the perfect way to enhance your art while still maintaining logos. We offer soft and hard enamel and cloisonne for different types of designs.
Soft Enamel: By filling the recessed areas of your design while leaving the metal edges raised. We have a wide range of colors and textures, so you are only limited by your imagination
Hard Enamel: One of the highest quality options we offer, it's smooth to the touch and has a durable finish.
Plating and epoxy give your coins different finishes and colors. The plating you choose can change the look and feel of your design. Epoxy protects and preserves your product. It can be applied in varied thicknesses, from a thin protective layer to a thick domed layer. Include epoxy finish to help prevent scratching, fading, and tarnish. We feature several different options:
- Antique Plating: Our antique finishes are available in our most popular plating colors, including antique copper, bronze, and silver.
- Shiny plating is a brilliant layer over the base metal and can be done in gold, copper, silver, and black.
Dual Plating: Created by adding a secondary metal finish, dual plated designs are commonly ordered when they require military emblems, three-dimensional areas, and recessed areas. This option is available on any of our products, and although the application of the additional plating adds a few days to the order, the result is extraordinary.
