Color Filled (Soft Enamel) Challenge Coins begin with creating the die of your approved custom coin design. Then a sheet of 3MM thick material of a copper-bronze mix is stamped using the die, creating an impression of your design in the metal. We then create any special edging that you may have requested on your coins including inscription of text and numbers on the coin edge. Next comes color filling. Colors are inserted by hand, one at a time, using different sized syringes. Excess colors are wiped off the raised metal surfaces. The pins are then fired at 450°F for 12 to 15 minutes. An optional epoxy protective coating (dome) can then be applied to protect the color enamels from fading or cracking over time. Plating is done next, usually consisting 18K Gold but other metal platings such as silver and black nickel are available. The raised metal surfaces are then highly polished to a luster finish while recessed areas are left with a sandblasted look. Your Soft Enamel challenge coins can also be finished with an antique finish, as shown in the examples on this and other pages, which gives your coins a unique, aged appearance, and greatly enhances the contrast of your design. Once the surface is final finished your coins will pass through a final quality control inspection for approval. After quality control approves your challenge coins, they will be individually packaged for shipment to you.
