How to Make Soft Coins
Don’t you hate it when you make the “move” and you hear the scraping of metal on metal or that dreaded coin click where it shouldn’t be?
The usual answer is find junk silver that have smooth, worn finishes that allow coins to slide together soundlessly. Finding 4 coins that meet this criteria is easier said than found after having dug in enough junk silver buckets at coin shows.
Fortunately Brad Morgan has released an excellent Soft Coins tutorial using a few basic items around the house and few products you can order for a few dollars.
Materials Needed to Make Soft Coins Required Materials
- 320 grit sand paper
- Lid that fits two Morgan silver dollars
- Dremel Tool
- Dremel Wire Brush Bit (Included in above kit)
- Polishing Dremel Bit (Included in above kit)
- Safety Glasses
- Blacken-It Product from A-West

- Work Surface Mat
I’m looking forward to making my set! I’ve got far too many Kennedy Half Dollars that need a good polish and softening!
