      I have a mold for casting pewter coins from when my husband and I were the
      local seated Baron and Baroness...it has our names on one side with Rurik's
      trident and the other side was the baronial arms but we can make a separate
      back for it now if we wanted.

      Pewter coins are very easy to make.
