Minting presses are today working upto 750 strokes per minute and this means not only a high increase of the forming speed of the coinage material, but also of its running speed in contact with the coining dies. High-speed minting presses are only efficient and economical, if the relatively expensive coining tools have a long and trouble-free service-life. This implies a growing demand for coinage blanks which are very accurate to size with a high surface finish.
3C coin blanks meet these requirements.

In collaboration with a leading Mint we developed a PVD coating solution to replace their current Cr plating used in Numismatic Coinage stamping operations.

Teers succeed in these aims and has gone onto to sell 24 PVD coating systems to 14 different mints world-wide.
Following on from the initial work on Numismatic Coinage Teers also successfully developed a range of coatings for use in circulation coinage stamping operations. A number of Mints from around the world have added this capability to their production operations.
