REPLICA COINS

Below are 12 coins made for the queen elizabeth diamond jubilee wood project commissioned by the Woodland Trust.

The coins are 8″ round and 1/4″ thick, they were made by forging away the background metal and leaving foreground metal standing up, this was achieved by use of various shaped punches being hammered into the metal while it was hot. The coins were then fixed into blocks of sandstone by pouring molten lead into the recess between the metal and the stone.
