Ugly Coin Competition 2014

Ugly By Design

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

1970 and Before

Art's 1696 England 6d

Very unattractive portrait. The coin is in fine shape and shows only modest signs of wear. It has a rather large crease from early in its life but has not split or cracked along the crease line indicating that it has been saved from circulation for a long time. Ugly - yes, but I like it a lot.

vs

ScottO's 1638 Sweden 1/4 ore

Not the worst design in the world, I do like the crudeness of it, the issue here is that the coin was made by the casting technique, and has had a lot of extra metal on the design from where the metal has ran.
