I was kind of inspired by Mike's musings about his Numismatic Journey and I thought it would be fascinating to hear other stories.  Here is mine.

Liberty from Prototype to Final Product

| Mokiechan

The US Mint has many things to consider when creating a coin for mass distribution.  Will the coins stack properly, will the metal flow into all the design elements during a normal, as opposed to proof or medal striking, and are all the required elements mandated by law in place and in an overall pleasing arrangement.  Sculptors on the other hand are used to getting their way and used to ensuring multiple strikes on their creations to bring out all the detail they envision.  Something has got to give!!!!

Coins | Mike 272

Hi everyone. Well it's over. Not the way I wanted it but the way life can due it for you yes I'm very disappointed but  I can't deny the happiness and joy this  hobby and you members and workers have done for me so much. It's been a good run twenty five years. Made alot of accomplishments and proud of my wonderful set. Never sold one I give them away. I'm not a flipper buy a coin today and make a profit tomorrow. Is that collecting no. That's someone who doesn't care about what he bought but what he can get for it. I love my coins. I have been going over them and I shake my head. I bought this beauty from this famous designer. Wow I can't believe it. I read my old blogs I print them out it looks like a book. That would be the day Mike Hemingway. Sounds good. Then you find a coin you forgot about and the auction you won it for nothing. You find your self going over them with a loop. Some have asked me did I cry yes I am man enough to admit it. Nothing wrong with it.
