    The metal used for each denomination, details which are shown in the specifications, is produced as a continues strip directly from the furnance. The Strip is rolled under pressure to the requisite coin thickness and blanks are then punched out of this strip and annealed, that is softened by heating, then washed and dried before they are passed to the coining presses.  The blanks are struck between pairs of dies which impact the design on to them. Uncirculated coins are handled carefully to avoid damage.
