Yes we have used it to press medallions. If I really wanted some nice ones I'd contact the shire post mint; they do it professionally!  One thing about screwpresses is that the pressure spike is high when it bottoms out and so it "squirts"  the metal into the die better than a steadily increasing pressure. (Nice thing about hydraulic presses is that you can build them to whatever pressure you need!)
