All of this process is eliminated from the use of stock dies because such dies are already in the inventory of dies at Northwest Territorial Mint. Many popular anniversary ages are covered, among them 10 year, 20 year, 50 year, 100 year, 150 year, 200 year, and many others.

Look at the last item in the caption to determine whether the coin was struck from a stock versus custom die.
Using a stock die for one side of a coin, but a custom die for the other is a way to get a custom-looking result with your department name and insignia, but with costs associated with only one die. Another option for very small departments is to use a stock die for both sides and engrave departmental or individual name or message into one side of the coin. A number of stock dies were designed with specifically that option in mind, which produces a handsome result at an affordable cost for small coin quantities.
