Make your own coins
I just ran across a site which adds an interesting twist to the typical coin collection. Instead of collecting coins made by a government, you can add a few coins made by yourself.
I can’t endorse the site because I haven’t used their services (although if they’re listening, I’d be glad to do an evaluation of a free demo coin and post my findings here).
The site is called Coins For Anything, and they create custom coins for, well, anything. The prices are a bit steep for setup, especially if you just want something for your own collection. However they seem quite reasonable for producing a coin for your club or numismatic organization.
If anyone has had any experiences with the company, I’d be interested in hearing about them.
