Ugly Coin Competition 2014

Ugly By Design

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

1971 and After

Art's 1979S US Susan B Anthony Dollar

This is a split decision coin. The obverse -- four thumbs down. The reverse -- four thumbs up. You have the combination of a hastily designed obverse and a re-used reverse (see Ike dollars) providing this overall less than attractive coin. SBA was not an attractive woman - physically - to start with. Then a far from flattering portrait was crammed into the face of a tiny coin in full profile vs a more attractive angle of view. It has been rumored that Frank Gasparro did not want to do this design and therefore did the job that we see. A gem proof coin with a solid cameo is actually quite pleasing to the eye. They are not very commonly seen.

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.
