JayAg47 Posted January 5 · Member Share Posted January 5 (edited) I happened to get my hands on a gram of scrap gold, and recently I've been watching some jewellery making on youtube, while I can't do much with a gram of gold, I thought why not mint a coin! Luckily I didn't need any elaborate set up, as the 'Tradeflame' kitchen torch that I already have heats up enough to melt gold! Here's the process, Well this technically makes it my first coin of 2023?! Looks like I didn't lose any gold, and has a diameter of 16mmx13mm.Only if I had an engraved die! So much work for a tiny bit of coin, makes me appreciate those ancient mint workers who had to slave away in hellish conditions to produce such coins we enjoy today!
