Ugly Coin Competition 2014

Ugly By Design

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

1970 and Before

Art's 1819 UK George III 6d

One of the top contenders for unattractive portraits as far as I'm concerned. No disrespect meant but this is not an attractive man and the profile portrait is not in any way flattering. A bit of "photoshopping" would have helped. A bit of wear shows circulation and a mild series of edge dings confirms actual use vs. pocket piece or such. Another ugly coin but one which I treasure.

vs

ScottO's 1944 France 2 Franc liberation issue

Compared to all other French coins, there is little in terms of design, the obverse is just FRANCE and a wreath.
