Make it round or make it any shape you want. Just make it unique!

OK, I think id do it like they have here but you want to keep the designs secret so that minus the poll.

PS: do you want people posting here when they have designed a coin, but not showing the pictures.

Here is what I posted above and I hope it helps answer any of your questions about where to submit your artwork and what we're looking for. We will not be asking for a poll here on the MN forums, as we are asking anybody worldwide to participate.
