### proof

A coin carefully struck from specially prepared dies on a pre-polished blank, resulting in a coin of superior quality and finish.

### proof

A representation of the finished print produced for customer inspection for errors to be corrected prior to mass printing.

### Proof

A test print produced to show what the finished product will look like. These can be made in a variety of different ways and at different stages of the production process. The simplest form is a colour laser or inkjet print which can create a rough impression. It should be remembered that at this point there are still a number of stages through which the data has to pass and therefore a laser print cannot be relied upon as an accurate proofing method. Photochemical proofing systems like Cromalin have for many years been the most popular method. The colour print is produced directly from the separated films and therefore gives an accurate interpretation. Sometimes the colours can be even sharper and more vivid than can be achieved on the press and there is a danger of creating unrealistic expectations in the client.
