In the 18th century, coin production technique changed profoundly. In 1700, the screw press was the best available, but many mints still produced hammered coins. By 1799, the screw press was old hat. Steam presses were available and supplemented by more and more metal-working machines, producing better looking coins, better protected against forgery, but also a more uniform look from one country to another.
