A sabot base comprises a 2mm MDF topper complete with a card underlay (purposefully thin to keep the sabots from being too thick). Alternative MDF underlays can be supplied on request at extra cost.

All the sabot base images on this page

are in scale with one another.

UK 5p coins are 1.7mm thick. This means there is just about enough room in the slot for a 0.5mm thick magnet and still have the coin level enough with the surface of the base. More wavy-edge bases here.
