Hi everyone

I am into silver coins and recently decided that I wanted to start making my own dies. I am trying to figure out the best type of CNC machine for this purpose. I have seen that both routers and lasers are capable of producing dies however which one is better. By better I mean which one will produce the higher quality die. I have been scouring the internet and have not been able to find an answer. I see videos of some mints using lasers and some using routers.
Max budget is around 15k.
Any help/ advice would be greatly appreciated.
