Childhood Sketches
« on: October 20, 2013, 01:40:15 AM »
As I have said...
I once drew a coin with Han-dynasty relief carvings of chariots(like shown below, but circular) going around the outer circle, and denomination in the inner circle.
It's been almost 10 years, I don't think I can still find it.


All my childhood sketches are not with me as for now...
So I re-drew one of them.
An "Empire of China" 5-cent-piece, copper.

It may end up like this, but the bas-relief should be far more intricate.
Large copper five-cent-piece may not be as economical as small silver piece, but it provides more space.

The edge is a very good idea, but I suspect that it would go better with a large commemorative coin. Remember the auto dollar? Putting that in the centre would make it a "2500 years of wheels" commemorative ;)
