Stamped V’s Cast Medals


Die Struck – Stamped Medals

A die struck “Stamped” medal is sometimes referred to as a coin. It’s how Australian money coins are made. Stamping is the process of stamping sheet metal such as brass or iron with a die. With a very powerful stamping press the mage is impressed into the metal sheet.

A die struck stamped medal is considered the highest quality custom medal and is a heavier medal than a cast medallion.

Cast Medals

Cast medals are made by way of injecting molten zinc alloy into a casting mould to form the medal. Some cast medal manufacture produces poor quality results but our many years’ experience has led us to a very high quality finished cast medal.

Thickness, Size, Weight

Both Stamped and Cast are a standard thickness or 3mm however they can be made thicker or thinner upon your request.

Stamped and cast medals can be made up to 90mm in diameter.

Stamped medals are a heavier medal than cast medals


Stamped medals do provide you with the highest quality and definition. The best replication of you image. Our Cast medals however are still very good quality.


Most medals are made round but they don’t have to be. We can make medals in different shapes and thicknesses. Cast medals do provide the biggest opportunity in this area.


All medals are available in the all finished. When a high polished finish is required stamped medals do provide the best image clarity. If you like the shiny raised/back ground frost look then stamped does give a stronger contrast
