FIFA World Cup 2015 Coin – Royal Canadian Mint

FIFA

The FIFA Women’s World Cup concluded last night with a victory by the United States. I worked on this coin last year for the Royal Canadian Mint and and was excited to see it released before the games started a couple months ago. Of the coins I’ve worked on for the Mint, this is the largest mintage yet at 200,000. At the time of this post, they have sold 76% of these! It also helps that it’s my most affordable coin at just $20. (You can buy it here)

It’s amazing to know that so many people have a souvenir of the games with my artwork on it. Below are a few more photos of the coin as well as an animated GIF showing the original drawing. It really is incredible what they can do with a simple drawing.
