JOURNAL FOR DIE ENGRAVERS SOUGHT

Web site visitor Alon Dagan writes: "I am a sculptor-engraver
located in Israel. I run my own private die shop. I read your
article about the reducing machines in The E-Sylum and I wish
to know, if you can recommend a magazine/website that I can
subscribe to, that talks about information and development in
the coin production industry? If there isn't one, how can I
stay updated?"

I forwarded Alon's query to Dick Johnson, our resident minting
technology expect.  Dick writes: "There is an American monthly
publication, The Engravers Journal, which, unfortunately is
more for businesses that have equipment which does flat engraving
for the award industry, not the modulated engraving required
for dies.

There is a bright spot on the horizon, however. A new museum of
coin and medal engraving and all related technology has been
created here in America, Gallery Mint Museum. A major portion
is concerned with die preparation. One of their proposed projects
is just such a publication you are seeking. It should be first
published in a year or two.  Here are some contacts:
