We hope so as we’re opening up the design to everyone who wants to give it a try.
Design a coin, front and back, and let your imagination run wild. Make it round or make it any shape you want. Just make it unique!
Please include all pertinent information about the coin you’ve designed. We need to know what size it is, what metals are used, is it 3D or 2D, enamel colors, any special attributes, etc. Please include Pantone chart numbers for enamels, glitters and glow in the dark. If you need help you can find a Pantone color chart here
The coin designs don't have to be camera ready art. If you can get your concept down on paper, please send that to us. We're not looking for artistic perfection. We're looking for fresh ideas. We will give all submissions the same respect and consideration. In addition we reserve the right to refine any design (but with full disclosure to the designer prior to changes), use different metals, enamel colors or special enamels such as glitter, glow in the dark, etc.
Please do not post your design on the forums.
