Minting dies can be produced by using traditional plasters, which are digitised using our state-of-the-art Renishaw Cyclone scanner.
This model is then read into our software where the rest of the coin design is added, for example, any 2D elements such as the lettering. We can then give you a 3D rendered artwork of your job to enable you to alter anything before it is cut. Models can be produced totally on the computer for a quicker and sometimes cheaper option to traditional coin die manufacturing.
