Hey guys i'm wondering how are people making their coins i would like to make a commemorative coin for a alt coin that i love that has yet to have anything made for it:/ I would like to have some insight on how these are being made especially some of these coins that have such great detail. The only way I can possibly imagine for myself is to have someone make me a die that someone looking like https://www.steelstampsinc.com but would like to know if anyone has any recommendations or advice thanks again! (Sorry mods if this is in the wrong section please move me if it is!)

Can also reach out to other maker/collectors.

Many of us collectors have also produced runs of coins that all of us collect...  Bitcoin Penny, Genesis, BYOB, etc  Cheesy

Can't speak for others, but the one I made was about a year-long process of communicating with BVN to Licence one of his plaster masters & then North American Mint and compiling all the various aspects of the design. The die creation was rather expensive because of the design needs .. then we had to run a minimum number of rounds; which was a little more expensive than the die creation. Then there was minting, which had added expenses due to the individual numbering of the initial run.. then, of course, it was back to the drawing board because we wanted to change the die .. so whole new die..  =)    

Thank BitCoin GOD that people liked them. (also accepting BITCOIN in DEC of 2016 helped).
Not that I wouldn't have mind holding the bag. I am as satisfied with the end result as I am sitting on my own personal horde.

All in all: I would advise anyone interested in making a masterpiece work of art, and are in love with the idea enough that you are willing to invest a tremendous amount of your time and personal expenses in the project to DO IT, but only if you're doing it for yourself - because you could very well get "stuck" holding your very own private currency of sorts. Like everyone always says: DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH and NEVER INVEST MORE THAN YOU CAN AFFORD TO LOOSE  Wink.

I was hoping that basically the only investment I was gonna need to make is in the custom die i was planning on pouring rounds myself into molds and just stamping them with the custom die I wasn't planning on going the route of 3rd party actually minting the coins but if i may ask what about was the cost of the custom die I'm currently composing my letter with design to the company i mentioned above so haven't got a price from them but would be nice to get an idea of how much the custom die would cost

Unless you have a hydraulic press you will not be able to make your own with the dies.

Collectors are picky it's likely anything you make at home would not come close to the results you would get from a mint that accepts small orders. A company like Signature Coins who does small orders of challenge coins might be within your budget if you want a brass coin, doesn't hurt to get a quote. If you are thinking about silver coins you already have a recommendation for North American Mint.

Thanks I appreciate it i remember talking to a company originally to see if they would make and sell me a die but they only wanted to make coins i can get a quote and see what it looks like but in reality it was more for just a hobby for me something new and fun to do but i do understand my crappy home made coins wont be nothing special  but i do appreciate all the advice thanks guys!
