What are the elements of good coin design? And why, according to some collectors, are recent technological developments in the minting industry making coin and medallic design worse?
We touch upon these topics and more in our one-on-one sit-down conversation with Austrian Mint engraver Helmut Andexlinger. Andexlinger is an award-winning coin designer, whose distinct design style places him among today’s top world coin engravers.
In our discussion, we go into great detail about the coin design process and we ask his opinion on the upcoming 2017 American Liberty 225th Anniversary gold coin design announced recently by the U.S. Mint.
