Types of Treasure Cob Strikes.When you're having your custom coin struck. Whether it's mixed and matched dies, or a specific type. once you've chosen your planchette style, placement on the Dies is key. if you want your coin to show a date, have us place the coin between 12 and 3 o'clock for Mexico style. Or wherever those target elements of the coin are located on the die. For round coins the blank is always placed in the center by default, however if you would like an off struck coin you would be using the same method shown here just tell us obverse or reverse between 6 and 9 or between 12 and 3 for example. don't worry that the Dies are mirrored we will do that for you. Make sense? Hope so. just remember you're in control of what we strike if you want it heavily doubled you say heavily double please
"Royal" or Galano Strikes. (Scroll Right). These are specially preparred planchetes that are round showing a full impression of the dies. They are hard to make without heavy doubling. That is why we make sure to get every single one right, even if it means many attempts.
What strike do you like best? I like Traditional. Tho I like a bit of date on it. It looks the most realistic. So what you're preferred look? #SAMCOINS
