A plaster model of future coin is created by modelling from material. Another technique is engraving to plaster. This technique is used mainly by the artists who can manage the engraving work procedures. The difficulty of this way of work consists of necessity to dig a future shape of relief in a reversed way. The use of these traditional handicraft techniques guarantee a high artistic significance of coins and medals, which are implemented in the workshops of the Prague Mint.
