Consultancy on new coin design

Identifying excellence in coin design and security features

The design and production of coins typically involves a significant reserach into alternative coin compositions and securtity features to reduce the risk for counterfeit, mixing and fraud hence prolonging the coin's life span. We have over the years accumulated valuable knowledge in coin validation aspects taking into account the coins acceptability in the vending industry and with other stakeholders. This expertise has been acknowledged by a number of Mints and Central Banks where we have acted as consultants to assist in the R&D and design of new coinage.


The diagram above shows an example of coin identification in the ICP Active-9. Each colour represents a denomination, and the three rows show different parameters, like thickness and two different conductivity parameters.
