3-dimensional means “relief”. Standard challenge coins are made using 2-D metal lines which are raised at a 90 degree angle from the coin. These lines then serve as “dams” in which to pour and separate the paint colors. For 3-D coins, a hand-carved or computer-generated 3-dimensional mold is made. These coins resemble sculptures. When a true-to-life replica is needed – we recommend making a 3-D coin.
Creating a 3-D coin is a great way to upgrade your coins. 3-D relief can be used to recreate a building, your mascot, a monument – virtually anything. And relief can commemorate a person in intimate detail.
Our coins are made of high-quality brass and electroplated and shined to a beautiful finish. We use both skilled artisans and computerized CAD artwork to create all 3-D areas of our coins. We also employee in-house graphic design artists to help you with your coins. We will take your rough sketch, scanned image or virtually any format for your emblems and create a unique design for your team.
