[Music plays]

Entering an animated train a robot is making stuff as a T.V. screen shows coins. The robot searches through a trunk, throws out items, then leaves the train, and passes by a "Making Stuff" sign with his circular robot sidekick.

A lively theme song says MAKE, MAKE, MAKING STUFF,
MAKING STUFF.
MAKE, MAKE, MAKING STUFF,
MAKING STUFF.
MAKING STUFF, MAKING STUFF
TO PLAY WITH.
MAKING STUFF,
MAKING STUFF TO EAT.
MAKING STUFF,
LET'S ALL GO TOGETHER 'CAUSE
MAKING STUFF,
THERE'S NEW FRIENDS TO MEET.
SO COME WHERE NOT
MANY GET TO GO,
AS WIZ AND GEARS,
START THE SHOW!
MAKE, MAKE, MAKING STUFF
MAKING STUFF!

Gears and Wiz get close to a large metail coil.

Gears says I THINK WE CAME TO
THE RIGHT PLACE, WIZ!
LOOK AT THAT HUGE METAL COIL.
I DON'T KNOW HOW
COINS ARE MADE YET,
BUT I'LL BET IT STARTS
RIGHT AROUND HERE.
I LOVE THIS PLACE,
WIZ !

Wiz says Me too.

Gears says IT'S LIKE THERE'S
MONEY IN THE AIR.
OH!
WHAT'S THIS?
THE STEEL COIL IS FEEDING
INTO THIS MACHINE...
THE STEEL IS BEING STAMPED.

Wiz says THIS IS CALLED
BLANKING.

Gears says BLANKING HUH?
SURE IS NOISY!
LOOK WIZ !
THE STEEL IS FULL
OF LITTLE HOLES NOW!
LIKE SOMEONE USED A
COOKIE CUTTER ON IT!
THAT'S WHAT THIS MACHINE IS!
A GIANT COOKIE CUTTER,
WHICH MEANS...
WHICH MEANS...
THE COINS ARE COMING
OUT OVER THERE, WIZ!
GO TAKE A LOOK!
IS IT MONEY YET?
IS IT MONEY YET?

Wiz says These are blank.

Blank coins trickle through the machine and then they are being cleaned.

Gears says HUH?
BLANKS?
OH, I GUESS THAT'S WHY
IT'S CALLED BLANKING.
COINS WITH NO FACE.
SO IT'S NOT MONEY YET!
BUT WHAT'S THIS?
I DON'T KNOW WHAT
THIS IS CALLED,
BUT IT SEEMS TO BE REMOVING
ALL THE OIL AND THE DIRT,
AND ANY SHARP EDGES.

Wiz says DEBURRING.

Gears says DEBURRING.
INTERESTING, BUT
IT'S NOT MONEY YET!
OH, NOW THIS
IS COOL.
THOUGH I CAN'T TELL WHAT
THIS MACHINE IS DOING,
IT'S MOVING TOO FAST...
COINS

Coins spin by in a machine.

Wiz says THIS IS CALLED RIMMING.

Gears says I CAN'T HEAR YOU,
WIZ !
ALL I HEAR IS THE COINS...
CHA CHING, CHA CHING
MUSIC TO MY EARS.
WHAT DID YOU SAY AGAIN?

Wiz says RIMMING.
MAKING THE EDGE OF THE
DISK SLIGHTLY HIGHER.

Gears says RIGHT.
SINCE THE EDGE IS HIGHER,
IT'LL PROTECT THE
FACE OF THE COIN
AND MAKE IT LAST LONGER.
BUT IT'S NOT MONEY YET!

Wiz says NOT MONEY YET.

Gears says THESE COINS ARE GOING ON
SOME KIND OF CRAZY RIDE!
AND IT LOOKS LIKE THINGS
ARE ABOUT TO HEAT UP...
BIG TIME!
WHAT'S GOING ON HERE WIZ?

Wiz says THIS IS A THERMOSTAT,
SET TO 700 DEGREES CELSIUS.

Gears says SEVEN HUNDRED DEGREES?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT
THAT MEANS WIZ?

Wiz shows an animation of how the coins become hot and easier to stamp later on.

Wiz says It is hot.

Gears says Yeah! THIS WHOLE THING HERE
IS A HUGE FURNACE.
WHEN THE COINS GO THROUGH,
THE STEEL GETS NICE AND
SOFT FROM THE HEAT,
SO THEY'LL BE
EASIER TO STAMP LATER ON.
THEY'RE A BIT STRESSED
WHEN THEY GO IN,
BUT THEY COME OUT
LOOSE AND RELAXED.
WHAT A NICE WALK.
WIZ,
YOU CAN'T GO IN THERE!
WE DIDN'T BRING
OUR BATHING SUITS!
BLANKS GO INTO THE POOL.

The coins are in baskets that carry them up into a pool and then they are electroplated.

Gears says HOW ARE WE GETTING ALL
THOSE BLANKS INTO THE POOL?
OH, OKAY THEY GET PILED
INTO THESE BASKETS.
AND THEN THEY ALL RIDE
THIS ELEVATOR UP,
THEN SIDEWAYS,
THEN DOWN INTO THE POOL.
WHAT'S GOING ON IN THERE,
WIZ ?

Wiz says ELECTRO-PLATING?

Gears says WHAT'S ELECTRO-PLATING?

A animation shows what electrical plating is.

Wiz says ELECTRICAL CURRENT
PASSES THROUGH LIQUID.
ALLOWS THE STEEL
BLANKS TO BE COATED
WITH COPPER AND NICKEL.
GEARS: HMM... COATING
THE BLANKS WITH NICKEL
AND COPPER WILL
MAKE THEM SHINIER,
AND LAST LONGER.

Gears says NOW THEY'RE BACK
ON THE ROAD...
BUT WHERE TO?
BACK INTO THE FURNACE!
I GUESS THEY NEED TO
BE SOFTENED UP AGAIN.
THEY'VE BEEN THROUGH A LOT...
WITH THE
ELECTRO-PLATING AND ALL.
THEY NEED TO RELAX AGAIN.
THIS IS COOL!

Wiz says THIS IS CALLED BURNISHING.

The coins are washed and spun around in a vat.

Gears says BURNISHING? HMM.
WELL, THE COINS ARE
SPINNING AROUND IN A VAT
WITH LITTLE STEEL BALLS.
AND THEY'RE...
WASHING THEM WITH SOMETHING...
LOOK WIZ,
HERE IT COMES!
LOOK AT
THEM SHINE!
I NEVER HEARD OF
BURNISHING BEFORE,
BUT THINK I KNOW
WHAT IT MEANS...
THEY'LL GET RINSED
ONE MORE TIME, AND...
OOOOH,
LOOK AT THAT SHINE.
THAT IS THE POWER OF
BURNISHING MY FRIEND.
BUT IT'S NOT MONEY YET!

Wiz says NOT MONEY YET.

Gears says THESE BIG MACHINES ARE
STAMPING THE COINS.
BUT IT'S WORKING SO FAST,
I CAN'T SEE WHAT IT'S DOING!
WIZ,
SHOW ME WHAT'S UP!

The animation shows that a coin is being stamped on both sides.

Wiz says This is called coining.

Gears says OH YEAH!
BOTH SIDES OF THE COIN
ARE GETTING SLAMMED
BY THIS BIG STAMP.
IT'LL PUT THE PICTURES
ON BOTH SIDES
AT EXACTLY THE SAME TIME!

Wiz says IS IT MONEY YET?
WIZ.

Gears says IT IS MONEY NOW!
A PERFECT COIN EVERY TIME.
SHINY, STRONG,
JUST BEAUTIFUL.
LET'S GO HOME AND
COUNT OUR MONEY!

Gears and Wiz go home and inspect their money up close with a magnifying glass.

Gears says THERE IT IS AGAIN.
THE SWEET SOUND
OF COINS FALLING.
CHA CHING.

Wiz says CHA CHING.
