I have been wondering how are the coins we use designed? Is there a software or a coin design program available that's used to create coins.

1. Plaster is poured over the clay model, forming a negative plaster model. Then the lettering is cut into the plaster in reverse. Several plaster models are refined to make the best possible model. After the model is approved, a negative rubber mould is made and epoxy is poured into it to create an extremely durable model.

2. The epoxy model is mounted on a machine called a transfer-engraver. At one end, a stylus traces the large epoxy model. In between, a ratio bar is set to transfer the design to a smaller size. At the other end of the machine, a carbide tool cuts the reduced design into a steel blank, making a positive replica called a master hub.
 
3. Finally, any imperfections that occurred during the transfer process are removed.
