Default Re: Engraving coining dies

Tom, a small question. Can you tell a rule of thumb, if it exists, for press power and size of coin it is able to make?

You said that 30-ton press would be enough to make dime/penny/nickel size coins. Dime is probably about 1/2 inch diameter? (sorry, never seen/user one of those in real life). So, for example, how big press would I need for 3/4" or 1" coins? Or, how much would I be able to do with 50 ton press?

This is just excellent thread/info here!
