Here's my concept for commemorative coin:

first side: hand holding pistol, another hand reaching for pistol, hand from above stopping the grabber hand.

flip side: bolt face that reads "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" with Boltface.

thanks.

I'll gladly clean it up (fix it/add stuff/whatever) in an actual drawing, then scan it and do some digital magic if it gets some support from the the members and powers that be. I'll definitely sharpen it up if it's liked though.

For now, just a rough draft/concept thing..

I'd like to have one around for those times when there's a high stakes coin toss going on in the room.

I really like the complete 2nd amendment around the top and bottom edges as shown in the design in the other thread. I REALLY like the idea of a minuteman being prominent in the design. The Supreme Court building is a nice touch but might be more appropriate for the back.

What I posted in the other thread



What corwin1968 suggested.



Maybe something like this for the back.

OK - I did one too. This is a mock up, if chosen I will make it in Illustrator, so it will be clean, vector based graphics. I did it mainly in black and white. I was thinking about if it was a minted coin. If we want or can use colors, we can do that as well.

I went a different route and tried to commemorate the actual event. Instead of posturing ourselves aggressively with our weapons drawn or clutched by an eagle, I opted to show the system that 'worked' and the person who spearheaded the decision. On the heads side we have Scalia and the Supreme Court house with the 5 judges names and the date. On the tales side we have the decision as well as the quote that I found very important about the 2nd amendment being an individual right. I think have the Bill of Rights with the 2nd Amendment being taped back in. I honestly feel this 'repaired' the bill of rights with this descion.

I hope you all like it. I would request one or two of the coins for my troubles if it is selected. Thanks.

ETA - is it possible to print on the edge of the coin, like the new presidential dollars? We could put the 2nd amendment there.

It is in CMYK so you can't see it in your browser. Its for other designers who want to peek at more detail (though there isnt any really, its a mock up.)

I like the SCOTUS building a lot, even if it were in less detail. Any image should relate directly to the case itself (i.e., the Supreme Court building, Scalia or Gura portraits, a rought outline of D.C. itself, etc.).

Also, if nothing else, the date MUST be on there somehwere.
Link Posted: 6/30/2008 9:30:17 PM EDT
I really doubt edge lettering would be possible. I know its on the presidential dollars, but we don't have the same capabilities as the US mint. It would be cool, though.

I like it, I just don't know how fine of detail they are capable of... but great concept! Powerful


Thanks. For the record I will simplify it greatly for the coin. Right now its just pictures I made black and white and upped the contrast on. I would actually make the images in Illustratrator, simplifying the design, making it clean and easy to 'read'. I am sure I can make the design to fit within the parameters of whomever makes the coins.

ETA - is is possible to see a coin done in the past?

Case name and ar15.com enlarged slightly. M4 and bolt gone. Quote from HiramRanger's first post. 5 judges names added






ETA: 5th judge added (DUH). It's early.

I would remove the prefatory clause and just show the right. It will allow you to make the text considerably larger

<grammar nazi>
Are we going to capitalize certain words of the Second Amendment?
</grammar nazi>

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution


The Second Amendment, as passed by the House and Senate, reads:
“ A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. ”

The original and copies distributed to the states, and then ratified by them, had different capitalization and punctuation:
“ A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. ”

Both versions are commonly used in official government publications. The original hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights, approved by the House and Senate, was prepared by scribe William Lambert and hangs in the National Archives. In District of Columbia v. Heller, the Supreme Court cites the House and Senate text.

Redeye, two suggestions. Should be fairly easy. With the court ruling quote... put it in quotes.

Second, can you show the coin with a pewter finish as well as the gold? If we don't go color, we may opt for pewter or gold... or maybe both if there is enough demand.



Quotes added and changed color.




We can change the grammar and capitalization to whatever is considered to be the correct wording. I'm not sure which is commonly accepted as correct.

I think we should keep the prefatory clause in because that is what the anti's are always accusing us of ignoring. This way it rubs it in their face and proves to them what it really means. I could make the type a little larger but space is limited. Whoever actually makes the coins probably has a minimum type size that can be done. If everyone decides to just use "The right of the people.." part, I'm fine with that too.

I'm about to leave for work, so if anybody wants to add anything or change my design, just post it and I'll do it when I get home tonight. I like the other posters designs also. I'm not opposed to ditching mine for theirs if that what the majority wants.

Edit: Switched images like corwin suggested

Link Posted: 7/1/2008 6:42:50 AM EDT
The one side just seems to have too much empty space around the minuteman. Maybe have the minuteman on top of a boltface logo that takes up all that empty space?
Link Posted: 7/1/2008 6:44:13 AM EDT
I'm liking this even more. Maybe the images should be reversed and the minuteman should be on the same side as the amendment and the quote and names on the same side as the building.

I hope we can get the entire amendment on the coin.
