Coin Design

Numismatic Artistry | user_65360

Did you know that you could have the design of you own on the revers of a coin. Well people as young as students in high school have had something like this happen to them all you need to do is do a little research and find out about a competition that the mint is having. One competition that I have found is the Mint announces design competition for 2019 Apollo 11 Moon-landing commemorative coin and what they want is "The convex (domed) reverse will be designed by a U.S. Mint artist, and will feature “a representation of a close-up of the famous ‘Buzz Aldrin on the Moon’ photograph taken July 20, 1969, that shows just the visor and part of the helmet of astronaut Buzz Aldrin, including the reflection of astronaut Neil Armstrong, the United States flag, and the lunar lander.”" In this competition you could earn up to 5,000 if your design is chosen.

cool, though my artistic ability(or, in simpler terms, the lack of it) would prevent me from getting anywhere with this stuff. Might be something to do for fun though

Slightly confused. Is this an old blog that made it back to the front of the line? They way the Apollo 11 competition is described makes it sound like this blog preceded its successful design and issue. Straighten me out folks!!!!

I have. As a matter of fast there is another member who made a three medal set. I had one made at the Highland mint. The Bicentennial coins was a competition they received five thousand a piece and there initials on them. There constantly having contest just read the mint news on there app. I still like making my own. Three of us made it I had four Proof Silver made. It graded a 68!!
