You Get To See It First!
There is more that goes into making a Silver Steem Round then what you think. I think between @edxserverus we have picked the perfect one.
When you first start the die Creation, really all the Mint requires is a clean black and white photo of your design. So as you can see by the above picture, this is exactly what the Mint recieved.
From this stage the image is loaded into a program called coinreals. With out a program like coinreals it would be very hard to determine or even explain to the Mint what you are wanting. Remember there is no black and white color when it comes to silver.
Now Coinreals will allow you to see what areas of the coin should be polished and what should be left a Matte finish. We'll go through a couple of examples below.
As you can see by the first example they have shown a matte circle around the edge of the coin, the wording around the edge of the coin is in a matte finish as well. Not the best in my opinion, lets look at another one.
This one shows an example of the all the detail being a matte finish with the top of the shield being Matte finish as the background. Better then the 1st one but still not perfect.
This one has the wording around the edge of the round perfect, the matte background makes the polished letters easy to read and easy on the eyes. Now the shield and the scales do not look very good on this one but we are getting closer.
This is really good except for one area, the top of the shield looks like it is part of the scales coming out from the sides of the shield. As you can see there are several ways to make this round look different but the same.
This is it, this is perfect, the edging is right, the polished background makes the Matte details pop out, and the scales on the side of the shield now look like they ARE NOT part of the shield. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THIS IS YOUR ROUND. This is exactly how your 2019 Steem Silver Round will look when Minted. @edxserverus and myself agree 100% that the last image of the round is the best looking one of all the coinreals examples.
