where did that bucking horse come from? How does an angry frightened horse symbolize the large word "LIBERTY" above it? I've been on a bucking horse and it in no way felt liberating. In fact, buying that coin would just remind me of that horrible experience, so I want absolutely nothing to do with it. Think of the people who have actually been horribly injured by being thrown from a bucking horse! How would they react to this? Oh yes, this coin reminds me of that time I broke an arm and a leg! Take my $2,000! Whaaa hooooo!!
I really really don't get it.
It won't be easy, but give yourself 50 lashes, then stand in the corner for 10 min.
The hall of fame and Apollo coins were pretty good though. Maybe they do better when they have a specific theme to work with.
There used to be an expression, "Close enough for government work," sorry if I offended any bureaucrats here, but to my recollection, the mint is a segment of our hard-working federal government. You may draw your conclusions as needed.
They (employees) don’t get paid more if sales increase. Very little incentive to produce out-of-the-park products. The whole process should be looked at for privatization. Whoops! Hope that isn’t considered political?
It is the HORSE experiencing Liberty by getting rid of the saddle. (got rid of the rider who was trying to tell him what to do earlier)
Give me Liberty, or give me.... a Brassiere ?
The rider of that miffed horse was definitely liberated from that saddle, for sure. In the scene the poor person is probably floating in the about a foot above the coin, waiting for a nasty landing.
I believe Commemorative coin designs are mandated by the Legislator who wrote the proposal for the coin. They usually write what they want placed on the coin and from there it goes to the US Mint where the artists then sketch the design incorporating the mandated items. (Plus those mandated by previous laws).
@Santinidollar posted. What that design is supposed to symbolize is total BS. If they didn't tell us what it symbolizes, would anyone on this site guess the meaning of it. Would the average American looking at it know what it meant? I very much doubt it.
The CCAC needs to rethink this one. The US Mint artists need to go back to their drawing boards. If the US Mint had a contest for school children, they'd probably come up with better ideas.
Sorry for the rant but just thinking the Mint would consider this design bugs the ....out of me
Bite your tongue.
Gee Wilikers! Oggie Doggie, cool!
