An epoxy dome is a thick layer of tough, clear epoxy that is applied over the surface of a coin. This makes the surface of the coin smooth to the touch without having to order the more expensive hard enamel style coins. The epoxy dome forms a “bubble” over the coin, giving the design a little more depth. Since it covers the metal and enamel, it keeps them from getting dirt or grime on them, keeping the coin shiny and vivid. One disadvantage of the epoxy dome is that it is a bit more likely to get scratched than a coin without the dome. The epoxy domes are optional on all die struck coins and required for coins with printed inserts. Hard enamel style coins cannot have the epoxy dome.
