Did you know that there are Designer Coins that feature artist's work? Me neither, but I just painted this Designer coin with a rabbit that I absolutely love. The coin came from the Anonymous Mint, and it features "Moon Gazer," by British artist Lisa Parker. This is what they call a "Bullion" coin, in that it is made of .999 silver, and is not only beautiful but has a value in the silver it is made of.
Also fun is that they are limiting these coins to 750 total, and each one is engraved with a serial number on the side of the coin. Very special. I have purchased 5 of these coins and painted them, and so will be a limited edition. Not sure if I will find others that I want to paint or not, but this is a very fun start!
Just like most of you during the Pandemic, I have lots of extra time on my hands. In my case, that usually means trouble! So, I am exploring adding some new AnimalCoin products. First up is Money Clips.
Yes, it is true! This was the very first coin that I completed to sell. Can't believe I have been painting coins now for 10 years. In honor of that, I just posted it in a second color. The original opalescent turquoise and now a deep translucent blue.
More Trivia - Crocodiles: They can close their ears!
Most of us know crocodiles spend a lot of time in the water with just their heads peeking out. Their eyes are located high on their heads but their ears are a bit lower and so are underwater. They have special flaps that cover their ears and that keeps them dry. On land, they can open the ear flaps to hear better.
When I am not hand painting coins, I like to share thing in my life. Coin painting, animal stories, my artists life, or even my adorable foster baby kittens.
