The majority of challenge coin is plated in one color which is gold, silver or copper, etc., like the below classic types:
Sometimes custom challenge coins are plated in gold, but the design still has some silver highlights. Instead of using a single color to challenge coin areas, we can actually fill those areas with two different plating options.
Two Colors Plating Challenge Coins
When two different plating options are used on the coin, we called it a dual plating challenge coin. This option adds to the appeal of custom coins by making it more unique and really outstanding.
The craft of the two-color plating process includes electroplating background color, coating barrier paint, laser engraving pattern, secondary electroplating, and removing barrier paint, spraying protective coating.
All in all, dual plating is exquisite manufacturing technology, gives custom challenge coins a completely unique appearance with two different types of metal colors.
The process has features of a special two-color effect on the challenge coin’s side, good coating adhesion, and appearance. If you want your custom challenge coins to stand out when given or rewarded, you will be surprised by choosing the dual plating option on your challenge coin.
A perfect example is a challenge coin customized for the 150th Anniversary of Canada celebration. Our clients wanted a gold metal challenge coin, and the coin design includes a 3D star image that must be done in gold. In order to impress the gold 3D image, our talented artist decides to plate the background in high polished silver. The result is one outstanding two-color plating challenge coin comes into being.
And the perfect option for dual plating is the gold and silver combination, which can make your custom challenge coins with a distinctive appearance.
