Step 4: Roll your dough out with a rolling pin and find something to use as a coin punch. Anything round will do. As you can see in the image above, I used a shot glass haha!

Step 5: Bake your coins at 325 for about an hour. Check them after about 30 minutes and see if they are hard.

Step 6: Now it’s time to give out coins their shine! We decided to go with gold because we all know pirates love gold! You could also paint them silver, or any color you wanted really! After painting them gold let them dry, then paint some black x’s over the top!
