  • How do you design signature coins?

    Designing coins starts by creating a sketch followed by designing an art proof of your logo. The next step is to decide on the best options. Options include choosing the size, shape, color, the adding of epoxy, special edges, engraving and deciding if you would rather have a 2d or 3d image.

  • What is the process of making custom made coins?

    The process starts by using illustration software to create a design, followed by deciding on the best enhancement options. The next step after you approve your design is to start production and to decide if you are going to start with full production or to create samples first, to make sure you are happy with the finished product before manufacture your entire order.

  • What does it cost to design custom made coins?

    Prices vary depending on the style you choose and the base metal selected. Adding color in soft or hard enamel will also influence the price of your project. 100 custom pieces are the normal minimum and prices start around $3.00 for a 1.5" with no color and a 2D mold. For example, adding special edges and a three-dimensional look would be on the higher side of pricing. Each design can be created simply or with all the bells and whistles and pricing will really depend on all the options you choose. Mold charges are a one-time cost and are determined by the size and whether or not you have included 3D.

  • What are custom coins made out of

    • Bronze and brass are the most common metals requested, as they work well with raised and recessed details. They are easy to mass produce as they are die-struck in production.
    • Casting is another great option, made by filling a mold with molten material. Casting shows off unique detailing and textures on coins, making them a good option for detailed images. They also tend to be lighter, and consequently more cost-effective.

Coin Manufacturing Enhancements

  • The process starts by hydraulically pressing your logo into the base metal, as opposed to stamping or die-striking, which is another option for you to consider. Hydraulically pressed, it leaving an unparalleled mirror-like finish without the imperfections that can occur in the other creation methods. Most logos are typically die-struck, but in some cases, they can be minted, raising the cost and the overall quality of the product.

2D Images

  • Two-dimensional images have two layers, a background, and a raised surface, making them an ideal option for a design that features text or silhouettes. They are the thinner and lighter of the two options, and therefore, have the friendlier price point.

3D Images

  • Three-dimensional images appear sculpted, achieving a level of detail that isn’t possible in the 2D variety. This featuring of intricacies and variety of raises, recessions, and curves, makes them ideal for representations of people, animals, and natural landscapes.

Diamond-Cut Edges

  • We offer a variety of diamond cut edges including wave cuts and rope edges.

Engraving

  • Engraving can be integrated into your design, adding serial numbers, words, and phrases in a unique and professional way. Engraving is the perfect addition with consecutive or serial numbers and can make your coin trackable by using specific combinations of numbers and letters. Additionally, simply engraving details into your art, instead of featuring one of our many die-options, is an economical way to add flair without some of the fees. We can also engrave the edge and this is called rim marking.

Adding Color

  • Thinking of adding color to your design? Color is a great way to maintain cohesiveness with your business or organization’s brand and logo and can be used to elevate different aspects of your artwork. We have color available in both soft and hard varieties, as well as cloisonne. Each variety lends itself to different types of designs, so work with a designer to determine which style is best.
  • Soft Enamel: The most cost-effective option. By filling into the recessed metal ridges of your design, leaving your logo raised above the smooth pool of your desired shades. Like most customizable options, there are unlimited combinations of colors and textures. From robin egg blue to fire engine red, you really are only limited by your imagination. Hard Enamel: One of the highest quality options we offer! Smooth to the touch and has a durable finish.

    Adding Texture

    Adding texture to the background is an excellent way to add dimension and contrast to your design, and lends itself well to most of our varieties. When creating your design, consider the diameter and consider making a contrast as an integral aspect of bringing the details of your logo or brand to life.

    When depicting details like those found in nature scenes, animals, or people, without creating your coin in color or 3 dimensions, textured backgrounds are an economical way to achieve your desired effect. We’ve honed our texturing techniques, offering everything from our favorite sandblasting finish to checkerboard patterns and more. Work with one of our talented staff to discern which texture would best suit your design.
