When electroplating is used, freshly minted coins are ground and placed in a container containing a special solution containing the desired metal (gold or silver). An electric current is passed through the tank, causing a chemical reaction that results in the formation of an enduring layer of precious metal on the core metal surface of the custom-minted coins. It is critical to select a base metal that readily accepts plating and "holds on" to the particles.
After the first layer of metal plating has dried completely, our technicians apply a protective coating to the areas that should retain the original color. Following that, the pieces are galvanized again to add a second metal to the untreated areas of the coin's surface. As a result, coins with dual plating are produced.
