Ugly Coin Competition 2014



Ugly By Design


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


1971 and After



Art's 1981 UK Diana and Charles Crown


A bad portrait. When found in pristine condition the coin is acceptably attractive but one an amount of use begins the portraits begin to take on far less attractive characteristics. The way the portraits are positioned is quite unattractive to start with. Don't like Charles looking into Diana's ear and all that.

vs



ikaros' 2009D US Nickel


The US Mint, in their "wisdom", dispensed with the dignified if slightly dull Felix Schlag design and the really, really nice "peekaboo" obverse from the Westward Ho series, in order to give us Nancy Kulp as Thomas Jefferson. And of course, like all other current American coins, it has all the depth and sculpting of a washer.

Yaknow, the Machin engraving of Her Majesty looks younger than the engraving of her son... but at least none of them look like a character from the Beverly Hillbillies.
