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

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.

ikaros' Columbus Zoo elongated cent

When I moved last summer, I dropped a handful of pennies including some elongated cents on the windowsill in my bedroom. Condensation and direct sun turned an otherwise lovely embossed line art of a lion into this corroded disaster.

Congrats Art. It's good to see that others find the coin annoyingly ugly too.
