Congratulations to Croft89coffey. :wiz:

Thanks to all that voted for me. Thank you JWDiaz and MihajloNesic. :)

In a future contest I would like to see the description of each design explained by each creator.
I think it would add a lot to the interest in this and would make us all better appreciate the designs.

Thank you all for the congratulations! And thank you to all the other participants for making it a fun contest.

Cheis, I especially want to congratulate you. I told my wife if I had to choose another design, it'd be yours. Great work!

​The details will come soon, as we are juste starting the manufacturing phase.
The specifications and cost will be similar to the last edition.

You can also exchange it, some people on Numista propose it for swap.

At first I was rather disappointed that the design I selected came in third place. Later on, as I browsed thru the 2017 Red Book of US Coins, I came upon the section on Commemorative. US modern commemoratives have the exact same look and feel as our 2017 Numista chosen token. Isn't that what a token is a commemorative. The Numista members got it right . I wanted our token at first to look like US Standing Liberty Quarter (variety 1 w/no stars and exposed breast) or maybe the 20 dollar St. Gaudens gold piece. But now I know the members made the right choice and I am behind this design 100%. To the designer, job well done you captured the spirit of Numista

The winning design is ok....but to me it looks more like one guy is paying the other guy, rather than them exchanging coins.

​That's a good observation. Another thing: Shouldn't "echanges" be translated "exchanges" and "frontieres" "frontiers"? I understand that "boundaries" means almost the same, but not quite.

The reverse is very similar to the last token, but I like the obverse!

My goal is to have at least 1 coin from each modern country.
