Concepts and Ideas Made Real

Whether you have a crystal clear picture of the design you want or you're still searching for ideas, our experts can help. Though your rough sketches or finished artwork are always welcome, they're certainly not necessary.

Our in-house artists can take whatever reference materials you supply and turn them into a design to meet your exact specifications. If you would like a specific image on your medallion, such as a corporate logo, we do request that you provide a high-resolution digital image, photograph, or camera-ready art to ensure complete accuracy in our reproduction.

Once artwork is developed, we move on to the sculpt.

Hot Topic: 2d versus 3d

A two dimensional coin has fundamentally only 2 layers: that of the background and that of the raised surface. A “2d” coin is an excellent choice for a silhouette or text only coin. A three dimensional coin has a full range of surfaces and the ability to hold high detail.

Northwest Territorial Mint: In The News

Designing Dollars

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?During its first two centuries, the United States Mint obtained designs for nine regular-issue coins through contests involving outside artists -- persons not employed on its staff. Most have won acclaim for their craftsmanship and beauty. In fact, some of these coins are ranked -- by connoisseurs and critics alike -- among the nation's finest works of numismatic art.

The dollar coin portraying Sacagawea, which debuted in January 2000, lengthens this list to 10. The obverse was designed by artist Glenna Goodacre, using Shoshone Randy'L He-dow Teton as a model for Sacagawea.
