ABOUT THE COIN FINISHES: The "shiny" finish is high reflective, like a mirror. The "matte" finish has no reflective qualities. The "brush" and "antique" finishes are dull, slightly reflective finishes.
WHAT WORKS BEST? For photos or graphics with a lot of shades, choose a "matte" finish coin. Text and simple graphics work well on all the coins. Make sure images and photos are good quality and not too dark.
ABOUT THE COINS: The coins are 39mm by 3mm (about 1.5 inches by 1/8 inch) and weigh about 1 ounce. They are plated metal alloy with a slight curvature to distinguish the front from the back. Edges are raised and smooth.
ABOUT THE ENGRAVING: Our state-of-the-art laser will etch your design a fraction-of-an-inch into the metal. The design is flat on the surface, not raised. The mark will be a rich brown color wherever your design is black. Shades of gray will be shades of brown created with tiny little dots. The engraving is permanent.
