Design & Artist

Brad Everton, Senior Manager, Applied Research (Winnipeg)

“The saying “If it was easy, everyone would do it” inspired us to do something nobody has ever done or would even think of doing. We set out to make the most secure coin possible, and you can see the results of our hard work with this token set. Also, every mint makes mono-metallic coins and most make bi-metallic ones — some even make tri-metallic ones — but we asked ourselves, “How much farther can we take this?””

“These innovative products were created after receiving feedback on our previous R&D Token Set (2018). That set’s tri-metallic prototypes combined value and security features in a way that made them more appealing to collect, even as circulation coins, so our team set out to redefine what was possible. We came up with the Multi-Component Composite Circulation Coin or MC4. Not only did we create the MC4’s structure and features, we also developed the technology that allows the different components to be automatically assembled and struck at high speed – that was the real challenge, and we succeeded.”
