Give Back to Caesar

Minting begins with raw metal materials,
     full of impurities not acceptable
          for widespread coinage.
Once refined, the metals in the mix are
     melted and cast ingot style.
Rolled to proper thickness, and softened
     for proper striking, blanks are punched
          into shiny discs.
Once set to proper diameter, all edges
     are raised to the desired planchet.
Business coins are made ready for mass
     distribution, while Proof coins are set
          aside for the Collector.
It's like Jesus said: "...give back to Caesar
     what is Caesar's, and give to God
          what is His."

Mark 12:17
