INCM commemorative bi-material coin, from the Urban Contemporary Art series


Over the last years, Mints have been working hard to develop increasingly complex coins with innovative concepts looking for a high interest in the numismatic market.

Coins with unusual dimensions (shape, thickness, size), disruptive designs, differentiating technological manufacturing process; bi/tri material (metal/metal or metal/non-metal), as well as insertion of security technology, are easily found on the portfolio of several mints.

INCM will present a commemorative bi-material coin from the Urban Contemporary Art series, a unique piece of art.
