Looking to make a custom coin the size of a dollar coin? You might be surprised to learn that you need to be more specific.

The dollar coin has changed in size throughout history. Most people thinking of dollar coins are thinking of the silver clad Eisenhower dollar. This was minted from 1971 to 1978, at a significantly larger diameter of 38.1 mm [1.5 inches]. Prior to this, in the 1800s, the dollar coin was made of gold and was 15 mm [0.59 inches] in diameter. After the Eisenhower dollar, from 1979 to today, the dollar coin is 26.5 mm in diameter [just over 1 inch] and made of a copper alloy.

Pins By Design can make your custom coin in any diameter. But if you ask for a dollar coin size, we will ask you to be more specific.
