Why is corn being used for Wisconsin? Nationally, Wisconsin ranks 10th in production? Even Illinois is better than that at 2nd. I know it probably has to do with the green and gold theme, but I never think of Wisconsin when I see corn.

Uncle Fun has a good point there. I think of BEER, cows, milk, cheese, mining, forestry, shrubberies, geocaching, sailboats, rolling hills, red barns, Milwaukee and the Green Bay Packers amongst other things - not corn.

The Packers would tie in with the Green and Gold theme... and that can be easily changed. Ideally, we would keep the green and gold. That would definately work.

Just be aware that the NFL sues for anything that smacks of football.

I think we all kind of thought beer wasnt the way to go.. and, we tried cow spots, but they really dont come off as cow spots unless they are ON a cow. LOL

Any other ideas are welcome!

Please do share ideas - I cant see as to why the NFL would object, being as though all those involved will be trading, and not 'selling' the coins.

But, as I said, Ideally, we would be keeping with the green and gold theme.

I agree BARNS would be an awesome design idea perhaps with a silo.

Just making mention that there shouldn't be anything blatant like a Packers "G".

*EDIT*
Oh and I like the Green and Gold corn on the state image, I would just replace the corn on the other side with something like the barn image.

Many of you know that I'm a HUGE Packers fan. And, I'm sure there will be many in the project who are HUGE Bear's fans. Knowing this I think it would be better to not use the teams on the coin. There is much more to both states than out team rivalry.

When I think of Wisconsin I think of rolling green hills and valleys, the landscapes of the dells, rivers and lakes (we have over 13,000) wildlife, Hunting and fishing (though I do neither), Cows, cheese, beer, agriculture, manufacturing, forrests, parks peace and serenity.

When I think of IL, I think of the blues (music not sadness), multicultural communities, The sears tower, Navy Pier, Potholes, Abraham Lincoln, food on a stick, agriculture, industry and politics.

But whatever you come up with for a design, I bet it will be great.

I added a cow to the front - a barn could represent IL OR WI, and since WI IS the 'Dairy state' a cow seems fitting... and makes for a nice illustration. Unless a barn silhouette would be used.

Another revision...

How does this one look?

I did another with a cow on the front, and with cow 'spots' instead of the corn, but I didnt like it as much as this design.

I like the green and gold corn on one side and the barn silhouette on the other.
