Abstract: The “Shrink-fit ring and plug” system is known in the residual stress neutron community mostly due to the VAMAS Round Robin specimens, that were measured by most of the neutron residual stress instruments worldwide. This standard, however, can be challenging for some low flux instruments and considerable beamtime and efforts are required to accomplish measurements accordingly to the measurement protocol. Theoretically, the residual stress distribution is not simple, being neither plain stress nor plain strain, and essentially it is a 3D distribution with a large gradient toward the flat cut, especially for the axial component. Another “shrink-fit ring-and-plug” system is being considered, namely bi-metallic coins. With an easier zero plane stress state, they represent another potential candidate for a standard. Bi-metallic coins are in current circulation in many countries of the world. In the given study we report on an assessment of the residual stress state of 7 different bi-metallic coins measured by means of neutron diffraction to reconstruct the full stress state. The magnitudes of the stresses in the specimens were different obviously due to differences in the coinage process and materials in use. While in some cases residual stresses are weak and therefore difficult to measure accurately, in some cases stresses reach ~100 MPa. Although question in variability of the coinage process through years and within series is still debatable, tight standards and tolerances of the mint industry suggest the probability of consistency in the residual. © The Authors
