Australian Defaced Currency Coin by Shaun Hughes by shaun750
Australian Defaced Currency Coin by Shaun Hughes
All the incentive i need:
The penalty for defacing current Australian coins , or selling or possessing money that has been defaced, is $5,000 or imprisonment for two years for an individual (or both), and $10,000 for a body corporate. 
Luckily,I'm in the UK .Maybe I'll get deported to the colonies?

Like your work Shaun and glad some sells well. Have many old engravings on coins and they always amaze and often make me smile.

Thanks.The love token society,has a facebook pages,and website,if you aren't a member.You can see lots more examples of engraved coins,and share pics of your ones.
I've bought a few old love tokens myself. One antique one,just happened to have my daughters initials,and others for studying under the scope.

Thanks, wasn't even aware there was a Love Token Society. Will look into it. I collected them and counterstamps, which I see you also have mastered. I do wish some of the pieces had the stories of how they came to be, even though that would deprive one's imagination. Maybe you can try your hand at enameling next. Will share a picture or two when I make some decent ones. Cheers.

Enameling is something I really want to try. Of all the things that you can find out how to do on the web,I have never found something straight forward,and supplies aren't that readily available,like they seem to be in the US.
Torch fired enameling is what appeals to me rather than a kiln.I keep meaning to search for old book that probably have the answers I'm looking for,but no time.…

Can you use a reamer with a diamond bit for carving into coins?

Hi Michele,
Yes there is a hobo nickel carver Owen covert that uses just a drenel tool and does some amazing work.
If you search for express375 on youtube you will find some of my videos demonstrate using whats refred to as a nail drill,and home made burrs.With some magnification you can do some good detail work.If you can start with buffalo nickels,it will make your carvings more valuable,and they will sell on ebay,if you want to,start an engraving fund to buy better equipment.
