A Reducing Machine was a type pantograph lathe used up until the 21st century to manufacture coin dies. Prior to the machine's introduction, designs were cut by-hand into metal dies by a specialist engraver. The reducing machine changed this by allowing artists to create designs on a larger surface area and then have them scaled down and cut into a die automatically. The most successful version of the machine, created by Victor Janvier, was used by mints all around the world including the US Mint who operated one to as late as 2008 when it was replaced by CNC milling machines.
