The Details

** Thank you to everyone who supported the Kickstarter project to bring these to life! **

UnMinted Cowboy Hat Doming Pucks are designed to work with the UnMinted Center Washers & Ball Bearings that are included with the UnMinted Cowboy Hat Puck and Pusher Sets (available in US Penny, US Nickel, US Dime, US Quarter and US Half Dollar versions), and UnMinted Slouch Hat Puck and Pusher Sets (available in Australian / British Pre-Decimal Sixpence, Half Penny and One Penny versions).

The UnMinted Cowboy Hat & Slouch Hat Puck and Pusher Sets work with your steel dapping block for doming the center of your coins (part of the coin hat making process) – these new UnMinted Doming Pucks remove that dependency (NO STEEL DAPPING BLOCK REQUIRED).

Steel inserts in the Doming Pucks give your domes a nice, clean edge, and combined with the matching Center Washer / Ball Bearing that come with the UnMinted Cowboy Hat & Slouch Hat Puck and Pusher Sets, makes it easy to get your domes centered, accurate, and with no loss of detail (aside from the stretching of the coin itself).

** Here’s how they work:

How to make coin cowboy hats using the new UnMinted Doming Pucks:

  • Anneal your coin, and polish it to your liking.
  • Place the coin in the appropriate Center Washer with the side to be domed facing out.
  • Place the Center Washer into the Doming Puck.
  • Place the Ball Bearing in the Center Washer.
  • Using your hydraulic press, press the Ball Bearing down into the coin until the press foot just touches the top of the Center Washer.
  • Gently flatten the brim using the Delrin® Mini Pucks on your press, then fold the brim using the UnMinted Cowboy Hat Puck & Pusher Set.
  • Optionally, add a nice crease using the UnMinted Crown Creaser.
