Custom Made Commemorative / Battle Coins have a long history that goes back to the ancient Greek world, and have been an important military strategic tool used through all the important wars and battles from the Greco-Punic wars, the Battle of Cannae, the War of the Roses and even the American War of Independence. Certain types of coins were minted for soldiers to prove which side they were fighting for when asked. But how do commemorative battle coins relate to your business or brand in the 21st century who is definitely not part of any civil war or battle for independence I hear you ask?
Custom Made Commemorative Coins
Custom made enamel pin badges and custom patches are great merchandise options to be worn by your eager customers so that they can show support for your cause, your business and your mission. They are fun little items and require no real effort to be worn. You just stick them on!
Our custom made coins on the the other hand are a different beast altogether. Just like our enamel pins, coins can come in any shape, size, thickness and style. But generally speaking they are usually round (as are all coins), plated in silver, bronze or gold and roughly 3mm to 4mm in thickness. This thickness enables the coin to have that reassuring tactile feel when in the hand. It also gives them that ‘fidget appeal’, until you have one of our coins in your hand this is hard to describe with words alone.
Trust With One Of Our Designers Tom

That is why we have our lead designer Tom, who is specialised in traditional vector art, so please give us a try if you want that classic looking coin look for your next merchandise venture!

Custom Made Commemorative Coins. Basic Info
They can be die-stuck or die-cast in any shape or size and with any design on them. Die-cast are generally flat in appearance whilst die-cast, aka 3D, can be raised in appearance. They can be single sided or double sided, and with enamel on either one or both sides. They are effectively like custom medals, just with no ribbon loop attached.
Plating Options: Silver, Gold, Copper, Nickel + More!
They can be made from brass or zinc alloy and plated in over 21 different plating options such as silver, gold, copper, nickel and variations of these like ‘antique’. The coins can be presented in durable plastic pouches or in more thoughtful commemorative boxes branded with your logo on the lid. There are no limitations. You just need to tell us what you need.
Coins For Commemorative And Commemoration Events For Larger Businesses and Organisations
Custom made coins are great for commemoration events, to mark a special moment in time. It could be a company or employee turning 25 years or 50 years of service. To mark this momentous occasion, each employee is handed a commemorative coin to keep as a reminder of their great service, which will no doubt be cherished for decades and even passed down in the family.
Tokens And Special Offers For Customers
If you offer a service which requires that customers come back frequently such as tattooing, hair cuts, food and drink and more, you could offer your customers tokens that they can buy at a slightly discounted rate. So for example, if your tattoo parlour charges £100 per hour, you can sell £100 tokens for £90.
