The commemoratives marketplace is filled with generic event and organizational coins that fall short of creating the warm feeling intended from a special gift. A growing number of buyers are investing in the long-term benefits of short-run challenge coins and custom coins from Medalcraft Mint to reinforce their brand in the minds of recipients.
Medalcraft Mint, a Wisconsin-based company with a history of award-winning medal striking, leverages its in-house art department to create coins that stand the test of time. Recipients are more likely to hold onto and display custom coins much longer than they would a generic coin.
“Our team works collaboratively with customers to ensure their coins feature the exact style they are looking for,” says Jerry Moran, owner and chief executive officer at Medalcraft Mint. “Our commitment to ensuring every detail is covered makes custom coins more than just a commemorative. They are truly lifetime keepsakes.”
Custom coins are able to feature unique designs
Few commemoratives catch the eye more than coins. The ability to work specific messages, images and logos into the design makes them special for each organization or event. These unique designs provide tactile and visual memories that recipients retain for extended periods of time.
Medalcraft Mint’s metal striking process begins with highly skilled craftsmen, who engrave or hand-sculpt designs approved by customers into a steel die block. Pressing material into the die cavity makes an exact, repeatable impression of the crafted image and creates more superior images than cast pieces.
“Distributors as well as direct customers are looking for custom coins that set them apart from their competitors,” Moran says. “Our in-house manufacturing capabilities make it possible for us to deliver orders within three weeks of approval. This is another advantage of working with American manufacturers.”
Medalcraft Mint has reputation for quality craftsmanship
Medalcraft Mint has been a Wisconsin-based company since its founding in 1948. The company produces a wide selection of challenge coins, badges, recognition awards, ceremonial maces and other commemoratives in its 40,000-square-foot facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
