ABOUT THE COIN FINISHES: The "shiny" finish is high reflective, like a mirror. The "brush" finish is dull, but slightly reflective.
WHAT WORKS BEST? For photos or graphics with a lot of shades, choose the "brush" finish coin. Text and simple graphics work well on either finish. 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.
