Ugly Coin Competition 2014

Ugly By Design

I'm Not Bad, I'm Just Engraved That Way

1971 and After

Art's 1981 UK Diana and Charles Crown

A bad portrait. When found in pristine condition the coin is acceptably attractive but one an amount of use begins the portraits begin to take on far less attractive characteristics. The way the portraits are positioned is quite unattractive to start with. Don't like Charles looking into Diana's ear and all that.

vs

ScottO's 2004 Pakistan 1 Rupee

Only thing going for it is the coin is struck in high relief, however the reverse just looks rushed and drawn quickly rather then neat and tidy.
