When commercialism becomes "art"

British Airways creates 600,000 coin artwork
20 August 2015, by Brea Carter

British Airways has unveiled an artwork of The Statue of Liberty, which has been made out of 600,000 coins.

A team of seven people worked for six hours to create the artwork, which is 10 metres high by eight metres wide.

The coins were delivered from a London bank vault to a British Airways aircraft hangar, which is where the image is located.

British Airways selected The Statue of Liberty for the artwork as New York is the airline's flagship destination.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
