Two hardened steel dies, each engraved with a unique design, are used to strike your custom medallion. These dies can either be rendered with two dimensional or three dimensional engraving, depending on the complexity of your design and the look you want for your finished coin. Corporate logos or slogans can often best be replicated using a two-dimensional die. Portraits, landscapes, and other highly detailed imagery typically require use of a three-dimensional die.
When the dies are ready, we turn our attention to the process of creating blanks. This usually starts with the melt.
We store each customer die domestically, protecting our customer’s designs as well.
