    How are the coins created?

    Each circulated coin is made from long strips of an alloy that's rolled to the right thickness, cut into discs and cleaned. A model of the coin is scanned digitally and the file is used to make the die that will strike the coins. A press then strikes them at a rate of up to 850 strikes per minute. Find out more .
