One option to get a flat base is to cut deeper and a slightly larger and support in the correct attitude for the coin and add at thin layer of resin/epoxy ( which you could colour to give a contrasting outer ring) and leave for gravity to do its thing, then add the coin.

I have used this method with epoxy glue but to create eyes in toppers, mix the glue and add to eye socket with a pointy thing and hold tipped over and tease with the pointy thing so the glue form a dome, works well.

building a dam round the coronet with plasticine and making the resin deeper above the coin and finishing to a dome shape will magnify the coin.

ps adding colour to the base layer will also hide- cover up any underlying tooling marks.
