Ugly By Design

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

1971 and After

Art's 2005 Luxembourg 2 Euro Commemorative

Placing two portraits on the surface of a coin is at best difficult. To make the two portraits reside in the same small space and present them attractively is almost impossible. In this case the portrait of Adolphe has a strange appearance. The nose is sharply pointed and the large blob directly below it - his mustache in reality, is really unattractive. They could have done better.

vs

ScottO's 1994 Cyprus 5 Cents

Never been a fan of these designs, just seems so plain and little about the place, or much there to fill the space.

Not all that hard a choice for me as the Lux 2 Euro is a coin that I have really disliked for a long time (and it's mine).
