You might want to consider moldable foam tips or mats from Clearsnap.
Here's just the first web site I clicked on when I did a google search:
http://www.rubberd.com/stylus.htm

There are lots of other sites online describing these tools.  You heat
the foam, then press it over whatever you want to make a stamp of (your
tokens, in this case), then stamp!  I've never used them myself, but
this might be a good, possibly cheaper, alternative to having permanent
stamps made of your tokens.

But you see, the lettering would be mirror-image (neg) if you did that.

All in all, it's not a good idea.  Copyrights, backward words, etc.....

That would be such a copyright infringement -- you'd have lawyers up
your rear for years!

I didn't think about the reverse image problem.  You are correct, the
foam in that case probaby wouldn't work as intended.

As for the copyright infringement, I have researched copyrights on art
and documents for various purposes, and *generally* speaking, companies
are fine with you using their art images for personal use.  However, if
you intend to sell something with those images and gain profit from
their art, you -definitely- need to contact the company before using
their art.  I do not think there would be a problem with making stamps
of the tokens as long as neither the stamps nor the images made from
them were in any way used for profit or sale.  If there's any doubt, of
course contact the company.

Unless, of course, the company in question is Disney.

True. That's why I said "generally." :-)  I recently contacted a company
about selling Christmas ornaments made from some of their cross-stitch
charts.  As long as my production was under a certain amount (ie. not
being mass-produced, just stitched by little ol' me), I was not selling
copies of the chart itself, and it wasn't of Disney, Precious Moments,
or any of those other big licensed characters, they were fine with me
selling the ornaments.

In the case of stamping, each company has their own angel policy which
details what you need to do to fulfill copyright obligations if you will
sell cards made using their stamps.

If in doubt, contact the company!

Well, maybe. If the coin/token is an antique, for instance, there would be
no copyright issues. Forgery, maybe, depending on the ultimate use of the
impression...
