It would be great if S|S reworked it into a coin design. The basic great design is already there. Just need a backside. (Hint, Hint)

And here I though I was going to get a break...

I would love to submit a revision of this concept, but just have too much on my plate right now. If it's something that the members like as a coin design, feel free to submit it for consideration. If it wins as a concept, then I'm all for working it into the coin design later. Sorry, just can't justify the time right now, I'm having a hard enough time managing adoptions and getting many caches up and running again. But thanks for the flattery, no matter what happens.

Yes it WAS in the shape of the state last year. Sorry I wasn't more clear on that.

The thing I didn't like about it last year, was it felt like such a nice image, but I didn't think it 'worked" for me in the state outline.

I think a state outline coin, should have lakes, terrain type features, stuff like that. The focus of the coin should be the shape, and features of the state.

Coins with elegant art work don't rely on the shape gimmick to get the attention, and can be freed to explore new concepts of space.

Next version. (Thanks for the feedback!) Removed the trails on the front and changed the wording on the back. The "trails" thing just wasn't working, especially if I added the canoe. Also got the gratuitous compass in there to avoid any potential © issues with the G thingy. Silhouettes are now also raised a bit in relief.

And in case you are wondering......
The scuba guy is under the canoe.
The horseback rider's horse was scared off the trail by the biker.
The hangglider is above the hikers.
The hiker's dog is running ahead of them after a rabbit.
The XC skier is REALLY far off in the distance behind the snowshoer, but you can't see him because its snowing.
Same thing goes for the snowmobile.
...and the canoe didn't leave any ripples on the back because he hasn't gotten there yet.

Did I miss anything? Razz


yup, you missed the helicopter that is lifting the cacher with the broken leg out of the deep woods Smile
lol

The helicopter is still on approach. If you listen closely, you can hear it coming.

I didn't get to see these until I had the drawings done, but the first picture is Koomla_k's concept for the geocoin design sculpted in clay. (Wow!)

If plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery, then two WGA members should feel quite complimented. This isn't for submission, but rather because I was bored.

Lovely designs! I like them all and would not want to be the one to decide. Anxious to see what else people come up with! Very Happy
