NEW TOOL! The “Re-REEDer” Stamping Die used to Apply DOUBLE-SIDED Reeds to Coin Rings!

New Tool; the coin ring “Re-REEDer”!

Now you can make your finished coin rings stand out by having reeded edges on BOTH sides of your coin ring instead of just one; a look not seen on any coin rings, until now! 😉

The "Re-REEDer"

The “Re-REEDer”


1. Place your coin rings’ un-reeded (punched) edge onto the “Re-REEDER” die after annealing (and quenching) the coin’s edge.
2. Using the hole in the middle of the “Re-REEDer” die as a point of reference, center your coin ring onto the grooves.


3. Next, place the piece of high-impact urethane pad (provided with this tool) over the Mint-reeded side and then put a compression press plate or coin ring Repair Die on top of the urethane pad. This will serve to protect the existing reeds from damage.

4. Line everything up under your hydraulic presses’ ram head, and bring the press ram head down onto the top of the press plate/Repair Die until you begin to feel some resistance. Finally, complete 1-2 full downward strokes with your hydraulic press to imprint the reeded pattern onto the coin ring’s edge.




The result will be a completely uniform pressed-on set of reeds. This tool I initially developed, prototyped and tested back in July of 2016 is the best and most efficient way of accomplishing this task in the shortest amount of time with the greatest amount of consistency.



You can watch a demo video where I “Re-REED” a Morgan Dollar coin rings’ edge by going to my YouTube channel found at: or by pasting the URL below into your internet browser:

Each “Re-REEDer” die is made from a solid piece of the highest quality tool steel that’s been meticulously machined and then carefully hardened for maximum efficiency.

The “Re-REEDer” can also be used to re-apply reeds to any coin that have been damaged. Simply file or sand the old reeds off and re-apply using the same techniques as mentioned above. (Removing the old reeds is best accomplished using a set of Rounding, Finishing and Polishing mandrels that I also offer separately.)

1.) Start by practicing on clad (non-silver) coins to get a feel for how many presses are required by your particular hydraulic press to imprint the new reeds. Factors such as coin thickness, whether or not you’ve annealed your coin, and the tonnage rating of your hydraulic press are all factors that will determine the outcome of your newly-reeded coin ring edge. If you use a 10, 12, or even a 20-ton hydraulic press, you may only need to complete ½ – 1 full downward stroke to imprint the reeds.

2.) Make sure that the edge you want to Re-REED is as level and smooth as possible. This is best achieved by lightly sanding the edge using circular motions on a piece of sandpaper or a sanding sponge on a flat surface.

3.) It’s strongly recommended to anneal the edge of your coin ring to be reeded prior to pressing them on. This puts the metal in a softer, more workable state and will make it easier to imprint.

4.) Make sure to use the piece of the impact-resistant urethane pad (included with the “Re-REEDer”) in between your Repair Die / compression press plate and the original reeded-side to protect the existing detail.

5.) I like to press the new reeds on when the coin ring is still cone-shaped, immediately after the folding process and prior to final sizing and finishing. This allows you to easily correct any distortion that may occur to the coin rings’ side walls from over-pressing the new reeds on.

Should that occur, you simply re-anneal your coin ring and put it back into the proper-sized universal folding and reduction die and using a folding cone; fold the coin ring down until the original shape is achieved.
*** NOTE ***
1.) A hydraulic press is required in order to use this tool. The “Re-REEDer” die will NOT work with any ring sizer machine or arbor press. I use a 6-ton hydraulic press that can be purchased from Harbor Freight.

2.) You will need to use a tool such as the Coin Ring Repair Die / Compression Press Plate to place underneath the ram head of the hydraulic press and the top of the coin ring prior to pressing on the reeds. If you don’t already have one, you can find it here:

Thanks, and here’s to your coin ring-making success!

NEW Folding Cones and Spacer Set for Folding all of Your Coin Rings!


With innovation comes constant change and tweaking, so an improvement over the current Folding Cones made out of phenolic is now available to all coin ring makers!

These new folding cones are slightly tougher, but are still softer than most metals in coins, so the folding cones won’t damage your coins’ detail at all.

Another major benefit to this improved material is that it allows the coin to glide against the folding cone easier without getting “stuck” and eating into the cone as was often the case with the phenolic folding cones.

Improved Universal Stabilizer Folding Cones

These improved Stabilizer Folding Cones are more effective at folding coins than the plastic delrin bearing balls are, due to their unique design; which allows them to do a much better job of keeping the coin level as it’s being folded over into your reduction dies when using either a Ring Sizer Machine, an Arbor Press, or a Hydraulic Press.

To begin, you simply set the coin level into your reduction die, insert an appropriate size folding cone into the beveled center punched hole, and then begin to press the coin down into the die.
