MintState Review / Recap
This video recreates and demonstrates the processes that are believed to be used to make coins in ancient times. Showing the smelting of metal and creation of coin molds to produce the blanks, this video then shows the use of dies to strike the coin impression. Overall, the video gives the viewer a feel for the time and effort it took to create just a single coin in antiquity. It is much different than the process just a century ago, and of course modern coin production.
