    I have to agree. I looked at the designs, and...
    Well, they just doesn’t seem like designs that would look good on a coin.

    From my view, those are all a big pass as far as my wallet goes. They kinda just sit there.

    Yikes! Out of 20 designs, you would think there would be at least one that stood out! It's tough to make those look good on a coin. There is one I like most; another 2 are ok, but the rest...sheesh!!! :banghead::banghead::banghead:

    This kind of stuff coming out of the United States Mint is embarrassing to me as an American!! I guess it's all about making money. Is there a Mint Chief Engraver or are CAD's Computer Aided Design doing the work? You or I could design better coins!! I hope Mint Management monitors this forum! :hilarious:

    Another example of a modern Mint offering better suited for the Sunday comics than a coin collection.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    I think there are a couple good designs, but I may be a little biased :happy:

    Maybe that’s what they remind me of: a design better suited for a postage stamp!

    The winning design has been announced. Another case of a common design carried across all 3 coins. All of you who had design #19 in your office pool can collect your winnings! I won't be a buyer :yuck:

    No danger.....

    ....of my money being spent on that garbage.

    In fact, I find the obverse to be pandering, offensive and totally ignorant when it comes to the history of the game.

    I really like it. In fact, it was my favorite. Good message, good design elements, etc. I had convinced myself they wouldn't chose that one, though, because they usually opt for the simpler designs.
