Custom memorial coins bring unique look to a special occasion
By: Medalcraft Mint
The last thing you want when it comes to ordering custom memorial coins is a sense of déjà vu. The artists at Medalcraft Mint Inc. ensure your custom coins are not replicas of any mass-produced stock memorial coins with original designs that do justice to your subject.
"We hear from customers all the time that having American-made custom coins is an important aspect of their project," states Jerry Moran, owner and chief executive officer at Medalcraft Mint. "The disappointment of receiving so-called custom memorial coins that look very similar to others on the market detracts from the special feeling you should get when you hold your new coin in your hands."
Medalcraft Mint is an industry leader in the design and manufacture of custom coins, high-quality award medals and other commemoratives. Its Green Bay, Wisconsin, production facility specializes in die-struck medals that elevate the quality of items such as custom memorial coins.
Die-striking process brings custom memorial coins to life
Medalcraft Mint's artists work with customers to create imagery that is specific to the subject of each custom memorial coin order. Work on preparing the steel die block does not begin until the customer is satisfied with the design and gives approval to move forward.

Flat stock metal is then pressed into the die block cavity, with the resulting die-struck custom coins delivering a consistently high-quality appearance from the first coin in the order to the last.
"Since we control all aspects of production in our own facility, we usually can deliver finished custom memorial coins in about three weeks after receiving design approval from the customer," Moran says. "This avoids delays and potential tariffs incurred when dealing with overseas suppliers."
