Flat Wave Diamond Cut custom token coin edge

A flat wave diamond cut edge on a custom commemorative coin design is named like this because it resembles the waves in the ocean. It has sharp ridges that rise vertically off the coin edge. This type of edge can be machine cut or sculpted into a custom military coin mold.


Criss Cross or Cross Diamond Cut custom unit coin edge

This type of Criss Cross pattern is cut by our specialized machines into the side edge of your military challenge coins edge. As you can see from the picture above it creates a diamond style grid pattern on the outside edge of your custom challenge coin.


Scalloped edging for your custom made coins

One interesting thing about this type of edging is that it is often mistakenly called a petal cut edge. Some of our competitors will tell clients that they are the same thing. Unfortunately this is as a of their lack of knowledge of their own industry and often because they don’t make your custom challenge coins ‘in house’. As you can see the scalloped cut edge is done with a machine and on a bevel. Supposedly there is supposed to be a similarity to a ‘scallop’ shell, but we just don’t see that….Maybe you do?


Petal Cut Edging for custom police coins

If you read our little bit above about scalloped edging you know there is in fact a difference between this type of cut edge and a scalloped cut edge. They do in fact l ook similar but they are different in the fact that a petal cut edge leave a small thin raised metal line on the outside diameter and side edge of the challenge coin. It’s quite pronounced and easily recognizable and an easy way to tell the difference between a scalloped coin edge and a petal cut challeng coin edge.
