+Jackalgirl Posted December 14, 2009 Share Posted December 14, 2009 Howdy, everyone -- This is the other design that's been keeping me up the past few nights*: Lotus Compass --or "the Aten gets the FTF Front Back It's a completely 2D coin that'll feature mostly translucent enamels, with four total metal levels (raised, semi-raised, recessed, deeply recessed). The hieroglyphs are translated using the standard transliteration, into English, and into a guess as to how they'd be pronounced (based on Coptic, mostly). Oh, and south is on the top because that's the location of Upper Egypt (and, in fact, the word for "south" means "up"). There will likely be a couple of alternate versions depending on what the mint says when they review the art (and, for that reason, please be advised that this may change a little). *I am happy to say, this is happening more often. Tho I really do need to study for the Chief's Exam! Quote Link to comment
