The ongoing scientific and technical development implemented in Czech Mint allows for offering our customers a range of product innovations, some of which rank among the world’s top products in minting coins and medals.
The Mint has carried out mintage of a variety of custom-made products to meet customer requirements, based on submitted designs.
Product innovations include, for instance, an extended range of shapes, such as non-circular shapes, medals with circular perforations, bi-colour medals and medals and coins with circumscriptions. In collaboration, we also make sports medals with an eye for ribbons.
In addition, the Mint offers a broad range of surface finishes: patination, lacquering, gold-plating over nickel sub-layer, silver-plating, palladium-plating and brass-plating.
Some customers opt for personalized medals with hand engraved inscriptions, machine or laser circumscriptions, or colouring.
Among new and ever-expanding possibilities are combinations of a core-metal medal with inlays of different metals, set or glued stones and holograms.
A unique finish of medals is a struck hologram. Such mintage has already been done in collaboration with the company Optaglio where one side bears a pressed-on hologram, such as a precise portrait of an individual. Holograms allow for creating attractive optical effects due to controlled microscopic refraction.
