During the engraving process the image from the model is transferred onto specifically selected and prepared soft dies.  The surface of the die is hardened and then prepared and polished to highlight the carefully crafted details.

Creating a Custom Piece

Coins can increase in value over the years and can become lasting collectors’ items.  They can be used in a variety of ways:

  • Visitor souvenirs or redeemable tokens
  • Corporate gifting
  • Commemoratives and keepsakes

  • Animals, people, or symbols
  • Portraits or landmarks

In addition to the above, options for lettering could be: names, slogans, mottos, events, locations, dates, advertising, or a simple message.

Artwork and Design Services

Camera ready artwork (4″x6” minimum) is helpful but not necessary.  Business cards, drawings, photographs, or your written concept roughly sketched to give us an idea of placement of subjects and lettering can also be used.  Digital images such as a JPEG TIFF file should be 6”x6” minimum with a resolution of at least 300 dpi.  However for greater accuracy an actual photograph would be best.  Since your medallion would be created from an 8” plaster sculpt, any artwork provided should be large enough to fit into this format.
