Medieval Die Maker Demonstrates His Craft

Coins | Mr_Norris_LKNS

Rudiger the Moneyer (a.k.a. Mr. Carson Engle) was the medieval moneyer who created our club's first coin die set in 2018. I documented the process of getting a medieval-style hammered coin made for our club in my blog here at the time. Now Mr. Engle has produced a video demonstrating the die carving process from a blank piece of prepared steel bar stock to a finished die. Follow this link to see the video. You may be surprised at how many steps there are; or you may be pleased when you see some of the techniques that confirm in your mind what you had guessed was involved in certain steps. For anyone interested in the diemaking process, or would just enjoy seeing a miniature work of art come to life, this is for you. (Click this link to be taken to YouTube.)
