Project Fullmetal Alchamist: Transmutation Circle coins

I have always been a fan of Fullmetal Alchemist. One thing that always caught my eye was the Transmutation circles. When digging into them I discovered they are actually loosely based on actual alchemy which just peeked my interest even more.

It had been lurking in the back of my head for a while I wanted to something from the series, then it kind of culminated when I started using my laser etcher. I would transfer the transmutation circles something you could carry, just a little trinket you could carry in a pocket, a coin.

The first attempt did not turn out to great. I ran the etch but then realized it was deep enough for my liking so I ran it again. Well somewhere in that process something got fudged and I ended up with a double image instead of a deeper etch. so that entire board was ruined and I had to toss it. Sometimes when it's a 'pet project' set backs like that will cause it to be shifted to a back burner or even tossed out for simple frustration. This time however I was determined to make it work, and seeing as how I had some down time from orders it wasn't a stretch to make it happen.

So the second attempt turned out much better and after a little polishing it up I got it to mold. I have to say the cold cast silver coins turned out pretty amazing and now I'd like to share those with you.
