During Medieval times most coins were made by hand. An iron punch called a die was used to stamp out a pattern on one side of the coin. Two dies were needed for each coin, one showing the 'heads side' and one showing the 'tails'. A piece of silver or gold was placed between the dies and a sharp hammer blow to these would create a coin.
