To create medallions featuring extraordinary depth and texture, our trained artisans first produce a hand-designed plaster sculpt. This three-dimensional sculpt is then used to create the steel coining dies. The finished product is a medallion with exceptionally deep relief that you can see and feel.
Once the sculpt is done, we use it to create the dies.
Note: This process is not utilized for every design, but, it may be an option that you want to consider for your custom piece.
