You could read our Testimonial stories  on Blog too. Where you could find how we made coin for clients.
 We have made more than 10000+ custom coins. These topic cover Movie, super star, famous landscape, religion, commercial use for company, history event etc.
  
 2, after we have an idea of what coin to make, then we have to confirm the details, such as size of the coin, material, etc. So that the coin could be made. Tell us the details follow the step bellow.
1st  step: Size of the coin. (see video)
By stamping technic. You could make any size within 150mm. Only If the size we never made before, you have to pay an extra cost for the cutting mold.
Size over 150mm or if you want deeper 3D effect, we could make it with casting technic.
  We made these sizes the most.
  Round in Diameter: 50mm, 45mm, 40mm, 36mm, 30mm, 25mm
  Square: 50*28mm, 50*30mm, 44*28mm, 
  Thickness: 3mm or any you want?
 
2nd step: Confirm material. (see video)
We have many kinds of materials: Gold, Silver, Copper, German silver/copper-nickel, Brass, Zinc alloy, Aluminum, Iron, Bli-material, etc.
Most people choose Copper, Brass, Zinc alloy, or Iron. Depend on the budget and quality.
 
3rd step: confirm basic color. (see video)
This means the basic color of the whole coin.
Material basic color: Original silver color, original copper color, original brass color, original zinc alloy color, Original Aluminum color etc.
Or plated color: gold plating, silver plating, copper plating, nickel plating, anti-copper plating, anti-bronze plating, anti-brass plating etc.

4th step: further effect on it.(see video)
Add color or effect on the coin after basic color, to make the coin special. If the coins don’t need special effect, go to 5th step.
Normally people do colorful enamel color, pad printing, diamond inset or others, please talk to us. And the best way to describe to us is send us a picture of the effect you want.

5th step: packing or other details. (see video)
 If you have an idea, tell us. If you don’t, tell us your budget and outcome. We could do some search for you.
Simple packing: Capsule with polybag.
Other packings: gift box, display box, gift bag etc. A good way to do it is send us a form as bellow, then we get everything, and understand you easily.
 
These is a sample form for your reference.

3, quotation against the detail instruction above. 
We’ll quote you once we get your details instruction. Quotation including mold charges if any.
Negotiation base on the quantities etc. untill an agreement.

Mostly, we’ll reach an happy agreement on the price.
