Minting Process: Striking
striking

The polished blanks are firmly secured in a round collar, located inside the large automatic minting press between the top and bottom dies. On each strike of the press, the impact of the dies on the blank within the collar force the metal to "flow" into the recesses of the die, giving each finished medallion its unique appearance. The depth of the design is similar to U.S. coins and currency.

Splash Minting. The blanks are placed between the top and bottom dies in a high tonnage hydraulic press. Up to 1,500 tons of pressure is used to force the medal to “flow” into the recesses of the die.

The splash minting process creates coins and medals that are thicker and can achieve very deep relief of the design.
