This page was first posted in January 1999 just after the
close of public comment (voting) on the new dollar coin
design. I have decided to keep this page available for
anyone interested in seeing the design without
downloading the large file from the U.S. Mint.
The kind folks with the United States Department of the Treasury have given me permission to reproduce two images from one of the new dollar coin candidates. These images are protected by copyright and may not be reproduced in any manner without the consent of the government agency (whose name itself is a registered trademark and cannot be used without permission.)
This design, by Thomas D. Rogers, Sr., represents one of several finalists for the reverse side of the new coin. At the bottom of this page are links to the official U.S. government site with other candidates and information. The details reproduced here can only be downloaded from their site as a large .tif image compressed into a .zip file. I asked for permission to reproduce the images to allow rock art researchers and enthusiasts a glimpse at the design without having to download the file (or the software necessary to view it.)
