Coins – Hard vs. Soft Enamel

BEST QUALITY – HARD ENAMEL

Paint is heated at a high temperature to harden, then polished smooth. Slide your finger over the coin and the metal ridges
and paint is flush.


GOOD QUALITY – SOFT ENAMEL

Paint is air dried, creating a dimensional look at a lower level than the metal borders.  Slide your finger over the coin and you will feel the metal ridges above the paint.
