It would be nice to have this competition again this year. It should wait until the PCI2010 is wrapped up but it was a lot of fun. Maybe Mr.TheDeadPoint will want to do this again.

It would be fun. We don't get as many entrants in this as PCI of course.

 

I was reading a CW article last night about new coin technologies allowing different shapes, compositions, etc of coins. I think it would be neat to have a "weird coin idol" - coins like "the ultimate franc" would be entrants.

Maybe the Not-Safe-For-Work coins or notgeld would be allowed too!

I might suggest two categories: ugly by nature, and ugly by design. That way we don't have semi-digested Lincoln cents going head to head against mint but poorly designed issues.

Agree. And that's probably what I would do. Like I said "weird" vs. "ugly"
