Many times customers present an idea that can be produced as a coin; however, it is too detailed to be produced through the standard minting and stamping process. For these types of designs we are able to print the image onto the coin using the offset printing process. Offset printing is done directly onto the metal surface of the coin. The printed surface is then covered with an epoxy coating to protect the printed image.
The beauty of using an offset printed image is that it can be combined with the standard stamping process. An example is the coin we helped the Historical Association of Lewiston design. The outer rim of the front of the coin is produced through the standard minting/stamping process with raised and recessed metals. The center however is the printed image of a painting that depicts the Battle of Queenston Heights.
This coin presents a perfect example of a design that cannot be produce by traditional means. However, we were able to create it as a coin by employing the offset printed process. This shows just how flexible we are in terms of artwork and design. Almost any idea you have can be created into a custom challenge coin rich with detail and personal meaning.
Offset printed challenge coins are the perfect option for businesses, organizations, schools, military units, and groups wanting an exact image duplicated in their design.
