I made a new version of business coins. I was going for something a little more modern and simple. I used my Favicon logo for the main image, which is a girl standing next to a skyscraper. I started off by spray painting pennies gold, then using this method to transfer the images and text onto them, and finishing off with a clear gloss finish.
I don't usually use these for many business purposes yet actually! Most of the time I end up handing them out to new creative souls that I meet and want to swap websites with.
Feel free to give it a go!

this is actually so awesome!
Oh my goodness! This is SUCH a cute cute idea! Love how they turned out. :) You are seriously a creative genius! Love it!
Cute, but anonymous in the first comment is right: http://www.mint.ca/store/mint/customer-service/faq-1100010#Q1
Yes, I've known it's illegal to "deface coins" even before pennies were discontinued. Thanks for the concern though. ;)
How do they hold up? Does the "print" wear off easily?
It does wear off a little bit after a while, for example if I keep them with other regular coins. I think if I had something better to seal them off with at the end it would have lasted a bit longer.
