We'd like a design for 2 sides of a Commemorative Coin.
We need a design that fits the dimensions of the 1/4 size, half dollar, and $1 sized coins using the dimensions listed here: http://www.usmint.gov/about_the_mint/?action=co...
Precious Metal Refining
These coins will be distributed to partners, collectors, and consumers who participate in our Recycled Jewelry Programs. Our Recycled Jewelry programs, though on a small scale, help reduce the environmental and social impacts of precious metal mining around the world. We'd like the design stamped on these commemorative coins to embody that idea. The design should be clean, distinguished and have some type of eco friendly theme.
This design will be a stamp that is printed on a metal coin, so color is not applicable. Design concepts in black and white are perfectly fine.
Same answer as above.
I've uploaded a set of our logos and icons that could be used in the design, although it is not imperative. As long as the text of the John Galt Refining name appears, that will be sufficient. However feel free to incorporate the icons if you feel like it.
The following is a collection of links that discuss the social and environmental hazards associated with Precious Metal Mining.
