    What is the most user friendly software for designing novelty coins and bank notes?
    Then how do you create a die map
    From the die map, any websites that can laser engrave a die or a plate for novelty notes?


    Just wondering

    Daniel Carr designed at least two of the 50 State Quarters: Rhode Island and Maine, for sure. His resume is on his website.

    He is an industrial designer and mechanical engineer. Wanting to submit coin designs for the 50 State Quarter program, he wrote his own CAD package for this kind of work.

    CAD/CAM integrated software already exists. In fact, because of it, Portugal issued a coin with the name of the country misspelled. The design went from the screen to the mill and the dies were chucked into the presses. No one noticed until they looked at the output from the presses.

    The software is linked on the site above that mmarotta posted, IIRC.
