    Anyone know how to create semi realistic serrated coin edges in Illustrator? I can't seem to get anything to work.

    Oh. Sorry. I should've put in more details to that.

    1 - Create one stroke with pen (the size of the serrated edge)
    2 - Make it a symbol, so that you save your time.
    3 - Take that symbol put on coin edges. Duplicate and put it on another.
    4 - Make an outline of the coin's edge for the symbol's path.
    5 - Select both symbols and go to Object > Blend > Make.
    6 - Select the blended symbol and the outline on no.4 and go to Object > Blend > Replace spline.
    7 - Now you already have the serrated edges. Modify as you wish by double-clicking on the blend. You can also modify the steps by Object > Blend > Blend Options.
    8 - If you don't understand this textual tutorial, you can always view the tutorial here ; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ONDKqoh6to

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    Cheers

    No need for all that. Use the Star Tool. Just click on the document, set Radius 1 to 100, Radius 2 to 102, and Points to 100. And there you have it - a coin!

    You can also use the star tool to make starbursts easily.
